Mental Health and Farm Business Management
Exploring the Connection Between Mental Health and Farm Business Management
We know that mental health impacts farm business decision-making, but to what extent? What other management practices are influenced by mental health, and how does farm business management impact mental health?
Farm business management practices can help reduce risk, increase certainty and increase confidence. Through the business planning process, farmers create a vision and learn to set realistic goals. They assess the risks and opportunities they may encounter along the way and put measures in place to mitigate and manage what is in, and outside of their control. Planning solidifies the farm team, creating a support network including family, business partners, and advisors. It is our belief that in this way, farm business management facilitates mental preparedness, reducing stress and the physical, mental, emotional and behavioural consequences thereof. However, farm business management can also be stressful in and of itself, and the thought of improving your business acumen, rather daunting. Click here for our project page.
Throughout the next year, we will be working with Wilton Consulting Group to research the connection between Mental Health and Farm Business Management.
We welcome any interested partners to come forward to ensure diverse representation from across the agricultural sector. Click here to get involved.

EAGLE – Financial Analysis Software Program
EAGLE is a cloud-based, financial analysis software program built on a forecasting model. The software provides farmers with a set of valuable collection of financial ratios, indicators, and related information that they can confidently use to analyze the financial performance of their farm. There are no production-related metrics, meaning no ‘per acre’ or ‘per animal’ calculations. EAGLE, therefore, is applicable for use on any farm regardless of the farm’s sector.
Being seamlessly compatible with AgExpert is just one of the one the general attributes EAGLE offers. Financial and managerial benchmarking software, forecasting software, comparative analysis / scenario planning, trendline analysis, and online cloud-based data storage and access are also some of those attributes.
More specifically, farmers have praised the Program’s simplicity, ease of use, and clean presentation, and found value in using it as a decision making tool. Whereas consultants found a wealth of value in the multifaceted program that offers multiple applications, for example, finance, management, human resource management, and risk
