Taking charge of your finances: How to survive and thrive

Program overview

This short course will use an interactive and fun approach to teach participants how to organize and use financial records; develop and analyze financial statements; and make informed decisions regarding their finances. Producer teams will act as loan review committees and learn about these concepts as they review a case study farm. The concepts covered promote better internal decisions for farm management and stronger relationships with external partners, such as farm lenders.


Registration for the class begins at 9:00 AM with the program to start at 9:30 AM and finish around 3:00 PM. Free to attend with a lunch, but please pre-register for meal count. Contact Gretchen Thillen at 507-752-5094 or SWMFBMA 23669 130th Street Lamberton, MN 56152.
