Elevating your farm administration recreation


Incorporating professional practices into your management system can change the future of your business significantly. And could you turn your management approach into a game? A profitable game? These are hot topics at the upcoming Farm Futures Business Summit in Iowa City, Iowa, June 16-17. On this special edition of the Around Farm Progress Podcast, Mike Wilson, Editor of Farm Futures, speaks with two speakers for the upcoming event.

Wilson begins this podcast by speaking to Dick Wittman, a well-known business administration authority who focuses on the tactics a farm needs to thrive in a profitable future. Wittman recently updated his Building Effective Farm Management Systems guide to discuss concepts he recommends for all farms to think like a professional business.

Next, Wilson speaks to Darren Frey, longtime columnist at Farm Futures who writes the Finance First blog. Frey talks about the concept of making farm management a game, but make no mistake, he’s not talking about any fun business. With this game strategy, Frey is geared towards business success.

The Farm Futures Business Summit runs June 16-17. This is preceded by the Ag Finance Boot Camp on June 15th. More information is available at FarmFuturesSummit.com.
