Join us for our Optimizing Your Farm Records Series for Women in Agriculture, a two-part series with meetings in July and August. If you only want to attend a single evening, you are welcome to. Children are welcome to attend! Michigan State University Extension has partnered with Greenstone Farm Credit Services to cover the cost of pizza for dinner and our Tuscola County 4-H program coordinator will have activities for the kids, or they can sit with you.

This program series is designed to provide strategies to help you get the most out of your farm recordkeeping. A representative from Greenstone will also be present to explain how this impacts what they evaluate.

Session One on July 12: We will focus on making sure you know your farm’s true cash position and what that can tell you about the farm’s financial stability.

Session Two on August 15: We will talk about evaluating your farm’s profitability and how to use your records to gain more insight into the farm’s financial health.

Both sessions will be hosted at Beith Park in Caro from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. The first half hour will be spent eating with adults and children together. At about 6:00 p.m., we will start the educational discussion. At this time children will be welcome to either stay with you or participate in fun activities with our 4-H program coordinator. Children under 3 will need to stay with you.

Pre-registration is required so that we have enough food as well as enough supervision for the children and age-appropriate activities.

If you are interested in participating, you can register here. If you have any questions, please reach out to Cathy Patterson in the Tuscola County Michigan State University Extension office at 989-672-3870.
