Unlike Western’s Agribusiness program, the Farm Business & Production Management program is created exclusively for current farmers who want to incorporate new and best practices on their operating farm. Technological advances, crop and livestock production, government regulations, commodity prices, and environmental concerns all affect your bottom line.
Instruction includes classroom, workshops, and on-farm experiences and activities. One major topic is emphasized each year with a five-year rotation of classes. Graduates who wish to continue after the first five years are encouraged to enroll in advanced courses. You may join at any point during the cycle. Classroom sessions are usually held November through March with workshops and on-farm instruction taking place throughout the calendar year. All classes in the Farm Business and Production Management program include instruction on financial analysis and management of the farming operation.
