Farm Financials to Help You Sleep at Night – Part Two
Analyzing and managing financial performance can be both relatively simple and complex, at the same time … depending on what you’re trying to understand about it. In its most simple terms, financial performance can be defined as sustained positive cashflow … year over year over year. The complexity of financial performance is associated with understanding how profit is – or isn’t – being generated, and then figuring out what to do to improve it.
Financial efficiency is defined as the ability of a farm business to use its resources (operating inputs and expenses) efficiently. Profit is impacted by the financial efficiency of the farm. When profit margins are wide, there is usually strong cashflow. Often, when times are good (high profit / strong cashflow), less attention is paid to the detail of managing financial efficiency. But what about when times aren’t as good (low profit / weak cashflow)?
In this presentation, Terry and Gavin Betker will use their consulting experience to provide insight into analyzing financial performance, focusing on cost control measures that are designed to improve bottom line results.

Q&A Session: The National Farm Leadership Program
Join us to learn about Farm Management Canada’s new National Farm Leadership Program designed for busy farmers and ag professionals who want to improve their personal and professional effectiveness.
Few of us consider our own leadership as a competitive advantage. However, research shows that leadership impacts every dimension of performance including the well-being of the leader and those they work with. Canada already has some of the best farm managers in the world; increasing our leadership effectiveness is the next step to stay on top.
Kelly will highlight the benefits of focusing on leader effectiveness and unique program features that help farmers identify the critical development areas that will have the greatest impact on their personal and professional lives and help build the capacity to achieve more of what matters.
