Agricultural resolutions for producers

We are now officially one week into the new year. Many made resolutions to lose weight, read a book, exercise and all the typical sorts of promises for a better 2018 than 2017. Today, as we are in the middle of winter, let's take a moment to reflect and propose resolutions for agricultural producers in 2018. Many may already be doing some or all of these. These are designed to help producers think about ways to optimize profits not minimize costs.
