Farm business help at your fingertips


Spring is in the air!
Isn’t springtime in northeast Ohio a wonderful time? Gone (hopefully) are the howling winter winds and we all are crossing our fingers for a warm, dry spring.
I know many of our producers spent some of their free time this past winter attending extension programs, finetuning their management skills.
Producers can sharpen their management skills during the rest of this year by subscribing to the Ohio Ag Manager electronic newsletter.
This newsletter, published monthly, delivers information relevant to the management of profitable agricultural businesses. Each month, seven to 10 articles are written and published on the Ohio Ag Manager Web site at:
These articles range from tax tips and labor management to legal liability to financial benchmarking. Producers can access the newsletter online or elect to have the newsletter sent directly to their e-mail account each month.
Each edition is archived on the Web site and a search feature is available allowing producers to search for answers to their management questions.
Here’s a short description of some of the articles in this month’s Ohio Ag Manager newsletter.
