Numbers, numbers, and more numbers. Farm business analysis and benchmarking programs along with their associated summaries generate lots and lots of numbers. How do we present and work with these numbers with our clientele? You may be sitting around the table with a farm family and reviewing their first farm business analysis. You may be teaching a room full of farmers, industry personnel, undergraduate or professional students. No matter which scenario you teach in, we must present professionally and accurately, and help students understand these numbers and their implications. How we present and explain these numbers can make the difference between new or renewed interested in farm business management, or frustration and boredom. In this session, the speaker will share successful teaching methods and tools that have been developed around the farm family’s table and in the classroom. Participants are encouraged to share tools and strategies they have successfully used as part of the discussion.
