Council Members Featured at Farm Futures Boot Camp

It was a full house at the Ag Finance Boot Camp. The program had originally been set for early January but winter storms required it be rescheduled to the February 20 date.

Over 80 farmers and land owners from as far away as Washington, D.C. and Upstate New York attended the 2014 Farm Futures Ag Finance Boot Camp held in St. Louis on February 20. Addressing the group were officers and board members of the Farm Financial Standards Council. Topics during the day-long event included the role of financial record keeping, the basics of understanding balance sheets and income statements, using ag accounting in decision-making, and an open panel forum on key issues. The program was hosted by Farm Futures magazine and was sponsored by John Deere, Farm Credit, and the Council.
