PULLMAN, Wash. — Farmers and ranchers can learn about an approach to financial management that can increase their profitability at a three-day workshop — Generating Wealth, Planning Your Financial Success — scheduled March 22-24 at the St. Joseph Hall, 112 First Street, Dayton.
“The workshop is designed to help farmers and ranchers deal with the current financial situation in agriculture and develop an understanding of the power of the holistic management concept of generating wealth,” said Jeff Goebel, coordinator for Washington State University’s Holistic Management Project.
“In these workshops we explore ways of creating profit by increasing income, cutting expenses and prioritizing expenses. A really important concept is developing the mental attitude of creating profit.”
Holistic management is a decision-making process that can be used to achieve personal and community goals with economic, social and environmental objectives, Goebel said.
The workshop will provide an overview of holistic management, creating new sources of income and learning to reduce expenses and planing for profit in spite of depressed markets. The workshop runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day.
Registration is $195 for one; $345 for two. Contact Fritz Herres at (509) 399-2345 or Tanya Patton at (509) 382-4458 for more information and to register.
The workshop is sponsored in part by the Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources at Washington State University and the WSU Holistic Management Project.
