  • New Year’s Resolutions are everywhere! Some make it with us to the end of the year and some don’t. Reading more is one of my resolutions. It sounds crazy and I hear this all the time, “I would love to have your job; I love to read.” Unfortunately, unless it is reading reports or financial statements, I do not have much time to read at work. I do research all of the journals, reviews and recommendations to help provide the best materials that we can.

  • As we move into the New Year and try to keep up with those resolutions we have set for ourselves, it is also a perfect time to get a good start on record keeping for our agricultural operations.

    Record keeping may not be every farmer’s favorite activity and probably not the reason a person gets into farming as a career. With time, patience and a commitment to get it done, it can make a producer’s financial life a lot less worrisome.
