Good Farmer to Great Manager
The difference between a good farmer and a great manager often comes down to knowing the true financial position of a farm. Good records make it possible to track an operation’s true financial position. Inaccurate records can lead to misguided management decisions.
“Good Farmer to Great Manager” Record-keeping classes will teach farmers and ranchers to keep accurate records for their operations.
Coming to York Jan. 23 and Jan. 24. Class size is limited, so register today.Learn More
