Agriculture Educators with the University of Wisconsin-Extension invite you to learn financial fundamentals which will enable your business decision making process. The concepts covered apply to all businesses, making this workshop beneficial to any entrepreneur.
Designed for those interested in learning about or improving their farm financial management skills, Farming Your Finances-Beef Edition is completed over three evenings during which you will learn about the financial management model. You will learn about record-keeping, and using a beef case study throughout, participate in activities concerning the balance sheet and income statement. Together we will analyze and interpret these statements and benchmark the financial position and performance of the case farm. Upon completion of this series, you will receive a certificate of completion and be able to apply the concepts learned to your personal business situation. You may share this certificate with lenders and other advisors as you plan the future of your agricultural business. Instructors will keep in touch after the workshop, answering your questions as they arise.
