Know Your Numbers, Know Your Options
Making decisions for your farm and ranch can be stressful. However, having good financial records can help make the decision making process easier.
To help farmers and ranchers improve their record keeping and decision making, Nebraska Extension will be holding “Know Your Numbers, Know Your Options” courses across the state. Each “Know Your Numbers, Know Your Options” course is a series of four, three-hour sessions that will teach farmers and ranchers how to analyze their financial documents. The course fee is $20 per participant; class size is limited to 20 people per location.Learn More
