Are you planning to be the next generation farm operator? Whether you represent the transition of generation, or that of employee to owner, or as a new entrant to the business, a fresh look at management will be necessary. 

Introducing the Beginning Farmer DEMaND series, a line of publications from Michigan State University Extension, designed to help beginning farmers learn about financial and business management strategies that will assist these farmers in developing into the next managers and decision-makers on the farm.
