Business

BusinessFarm Business Management efforts of the NWNY Dairy, Livestock, and Field Crops Program seek to increase the likelihood that the region's farm business owners achieve desired results by applying enhanced general business management, and farm financial management skills.

To achieve the above purpose, program specialists Petzen and Hanchar develop and deliver extension education opportunities designed to enhance participants' management skills, and abilities to apply principles and ideas from finance and economics in a management context.

Owners of farm businesses enhance their management skills, their capacities to measure the financial condition and performance of their businesses, and their capacities to utilize economic principles in decision making via workshops, classes, presentations, writings, and individual farm business summary and economic analysis work.

Management Education. Emphasis is on enhancing the planning, implementation and control functions of the farm business manager.

Farm Finance and Economics. Emphasis is on enhancing participants' abilities to measure the financial condition and performance of the business for management purposes, and to use economic principles in decision making. Basic and Advanced Farm Financial Management workshops, Cornell University Cooperative Extension's Dairy Farm Business Summary Program, and other Farm Business Summary and Analysis tools play prominent roles here. Economic analyses of proposed changes to farm businesses provide farm business owners with information for decision making -- for example, economic analysis of tractor drawn tile plows, intensive wheat management systems, cow comfort practices, stacked corn hybrids, hay conditioners, zone tillage depths and others.
