Description

The courses will help families organize their record keeping system(s) and analyze their records to determine the financial strengths and weaknesses of their business and its enterprises.

Farmers and ranchers will learn the skills to prepare financial statements and use them in their day-to-day operations. Most farm records are based on the calendar year. Student(s) are encouraged to enroll in both fall and spring semesters. The course is repeatable.
