Good Farmer to Great Manager Record-Keeping Course at 2 Sites
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. The classes will be held in Lincoln July 18-19 and in Bridgeport July 25-26.
Each class will run from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. the first day, and 8 a.m. until noon the second day. The course fee is $50 per participant; class size is limited to 25 people per location.
"Keeping good records is less about using a certain software and more about gathering and organizing information," said Tina Barrett, course instructor and Executive Director of Nebraska Farm Business Inc.
“In this class, you will learn about what information you should have easily available as part of your farm or ranch records. When you have good records, everything from tax preparation, annual loan renewals, and financial analysis become much easier,” she said. “More importantly, it will allow you to make financial management decisions that improve your business.”
