Farm Business Management

Farm Business Management

Having a farm business is an exciting activity, but in addition to growing and selling agricultural products, there are many other important aspects to managing a farm business. In today’s complex agricultural business environment it’s all about building a competitive advantage. The Farm Business Management Program at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Jefferson and Lewis County is designed to educate and provide you with the latest research-based information and resources you need for the success of your financial agricultural operation while enhancing your business competitiveness.

With the help of our extension staff and Cornell University resources such as the Dairy Business Summary and Dairy Profit Monitor (ProDairy), you can benchmark your farm to improve your profitability and financial position. We are here to focus on the success of your farm business and by assisting you on strategic business planning, budgeting, cash flow management, bookkeeping practices, marketing, succession planning for business transfers and much more you will be empowered to analyze the financial situation of your business, set future goals and make sound business decisions. We invite you to contact us for a one- one assistance or attend one of our year-round workshops on farm business management to reach your farm business goals.
