Grain farmers know about the ups and downs of commodity prices and how difficult they are to deal with. Wouldn’t it be great to be able to take advantage of those swings and put your operation on a firmer financial footing?
This year, the Grain Farm Management Program, offered by the Agri-food Management Institute (AMI), has been specifically designed to meet your needs.
Over the course of five sessions you will learn how to think more strategically, work with cyclical markets, use professional advisors to your best advantage and squeeze every penny out of your assets.
You will work with real-life financials from a case study grain farm, that gives you tools to take home and apply directly to your own farm financials. At the end of the course, you’ll even have a Management Action Plan – tailored to your own operation – that you can implement right away.
If your business is in transition, it’s a great chance to work with the next generation to make sure the operation’s future goes the way everyone wants it to go. And, if you’re developing your business, think about bringing your business partner with you to start creating your strategy for future growth.
The course consists of five sessions starting in November and ending in February in Ingersoll, Ontario, and Grain Farmers of Ontario will even subsidize your travel costs.
