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 course is a series of four, three-hour sessions that will teach farmers and ranchers how to analyze their financial documents.

This course is designed to help farmers and ranchers understand their current financial position and how big decisions like large purchases, new leases, or changes in production will affect their bottom line. Upon completion of this program, participants will have a better understanding of how financial records can be used to make decisions and confidently discuss their financial position with their family, business partners, and lenders.

This course is hosted by Nebraska Extension and, as part of Annie's Project, is supported by Farm Credit Services of America in Nebraska.
