University of Wisconsin-Extension Dunn County and the Center for Dairy Profitability extend an invitation to learn basic farm financial fundamentals during the Farming Your Finances workshop series.

Designed for those interested in learning about or improving their farm financial management skills, this two-day series features an interactive and fun approach to learning about the financial management model. A case study will be used throughout the series to assist participants in learning about record-keeping and how to use a balance sheet and income statement.

Participants will complete an analysis of these statements and use them to benchmark the financial position and performance of the case farm. After this workshop, they will be able to apply the concepts learned to their own personal business situation. Instructors will keep in touch after the workshop, answering participant’s questions as they arise.

A certificate of completion will be awarded to those who successfully complete this workshop and can be shared with lenders and other advisors as participants plan for the future of their agricultural business. The concepts covered apply to all businesses, making the workshop beneficial to any entrepreneur.

Farming Your Finances, a two-day workshop for improving on farm financial management, is part of the Heart of the Farm–Women in Agriculture series and provides an opportunity for farm women and men to learn about farm management skills and strategies in a comfortable setting.

The workshop series will be held on Wednesday and Thursday, Jan. 31 and Feb. 1 at the Dunn County Community Services Building from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. both days. The cost for this workshop is $35 and includes in-class materials, lunch on both days and a copy of Fearless Farm Finances book.
