Farm Management

Farm management is not a series of canny, split second, or “heat of the battle” maneuver skills that are innately personal. Farm management is a learned set of skills that allows the manager to make informed decisions and to implement changes that will move the operation toward its goals. Management success can be measured by the quality and timeliness of decisions, which are likewise affected by the quality and timeliness of information.

The information at this website focuses on the family farm and its risk management aspects. We strive to help farmers assemble information from which they can make informed and timely decisions, find answers to specific management problems, and study public policy issues important to agriculture.
