Learn to financially analyze your livestock and farm operation in a different way to find more profit, eliminate money pits and lower your stress level. Sound too good to be true? Iowa State University Extension beef specialist Patrick Wall would beg to differ.
"The Cattle in the Green series was developed to meet the needs of beef operations regardless of size," he says. "We'll talk about finances and operational decisions, and how to look for and use simple management changes for better results."
The first four sessions are set for Feb. 11, Feb. 18, Feb. 25 and March 1, with the final one to be scheduled later in the series. All will be held from 5 to 8 p.m. at the Marion County Extension Office in Knoxville. Because of the evening time, a light meal will be served.
Fee for the five-part series is $50 per person to cover cost of printing the materials.
Wall said couples and business partners are encouraged to attend because gaining multiple perspectives on the cattle operation is always more powerful when planning and making decisions. A commitment to attend all five sessions is requested because each class builds upon the information and discussion of the previous session.
