Financial Basics for Ranchers and Farmers
Ranch financial basics and farm financial basics are the basis for a successful operation. This training is with Kirk Gadzia who has been teaching this subject for over 30 years. If you are the best grazer or grower possible, you still cannot succeed without getting this part of your business right. Ranch financial basics for most of use (I have to confess I like numbers) is not a fun thing to deal with or look at. If you feel that way, what you will find is that after you get the numbers in order, they are, maybe not fun, but at least you won't mind and will actually rely on them your decision making processes.
This training is not about accounting, anyone can hire an accountant. This training is about all the rest of the financial basic aspects of your business, get this wrong and your business will suffer if not fail. This is training that every producer needs to have and Mr. Gadzia is the guy to help you with that. That being said, this is a primer, not the whole course. With this training you will have an excellent start and you will be able to decide from here if you want more in-depth training either with Mr. Gadzia or online with HMI, with us here at the Network or somewhere else.
