Are you a farmer who would like to computerize your financial records? If so, make plans to attend a workshop that includes a demonstration of the Agricultural Accounting and Information Management System. The workshop will be held March 13 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and is sponsored by the University of Wisconsin Center for Dairy Profitability.
While the workshop is designed for beginners, current users of AAIMS will find they can learn new tips, shortcuts and other ideas to help them use the program more efficiently.
AAIMS was first introduced in the 1990s by farm management specialists at the University of Wisconsin-Madison in an effort to help farmers improve their management skills. The AAIMS program includes tracking income and expenses, depreciation records and tax management features. Recent additions to the AAIMS program are payroll management and the ability to track feed inventories. AAIMS is primarily designed for dairy producers, however, farmers involved in other livestock enterprises find this software program to be useful as well.
The workshop will be held in the computer classroom at the Walworth County Health and Human Services on County Road NN just east of the hospital in Elkhorn. Jenny Vanderlin from the University of Wisconsin Center for Dairy Profitability will demonstrate the computer program.
Due to the hands-on nature of this course participation is limited to 12 people. Each participant will work on a computer and follow along with the instructor.
