Do you think you are really not spending that much to manage your household; but just don’t have a way to prove it? Do you ever wonder if there’s a way to recognize how well you have been doing to keep family living costs in check? Are you concerned that there’s one household expense that’s too sensitive a topic to discuss?
Benchmarking can help farm women come up with what they need to address these kinds of questions.
Annie’s Project participants will learn in the ‘new’ one-hour workshop how to compare farm family expenses with data, establish a reality check on how much living expenses a family can expect the farm to pay, and explore how benchmarking helps make better decisions.
Explore how the business skill of ‘benchmarking’ is used for production agriculture when comparing farm financial performance. Go beyond traditional benchmarking that producers and lenders use to measure a farm or ranch’s financial position and performance over time. Experience benchmarking’ s value when applied to farm family living expenses.
This Women in Agriculture program will be held Friday, Feb. 28, from 11 am to noon at the Greene County Extension office. This is a free program. Persons who want more information or to register can contact Lori Mannel at 515-386-2138.
