Farm Management Education provides a practical study of the farming business for families currently engaged in managing their farms or ranches. Participants receive instruction in goal setting, planning, records/accounting and business analysis. Training in computerized farm record systems is part of the course. Content deals with the farmer's own financial information, which remains confidential. Farmers and ranchers learn how to prepare financial
statements and use them in day-to-day management. Student(s) may enroll in up to three semesters per year. The course is repeatable.
Farm Management Education is certified to meet the Farm Service Agency borrower training requirements.

A student must be actively engaged in farming or a beginning farmer to enroll.
