Farm Financial Skills

There is still time to register for Farm Financial Skills for Kansas Women in Agriculture, but time is running out!

This workshop series will teach principles of recordkeeping to develop a balance sheet, income statement and a cash flow statement. Participants will work with a case farm to do performance analysis and understand how these statements can help with management decisions. Other special topics will include managing family living expenses, coping with mental stress and developing a whole-farm financial management plan.

The program will be a combination of broadcasted keynote speakers, local speakers, and facilitators to assist in completing the hands-on activities. The goal is for participants to acquire financial management skills they can apply directly to their farming or ranching operations.

This program is just one example of K-State Extension’s commitment to diversity and inclusion. While the program is designed to highlight women’s issues in agriculture, it is open to any participant without regard to sex.
