Diverse Topics Taught at the 2017 OSU Extension Seminars

Nearly 150 Professional Agricultural Lenders attended the 2017 OSU Extension Ag Lender Seminars across Ohio.  The three locations provided diverse topics from experts in the private and public sector.  Certainties and Uncertainties ahead for 2018 and beyond were discussed for the Field Crops and Livestock/Dairy sectors.  Lenders are a critical member of a farmer’s management team that makes U.S. production agriculture sustainable and critical to the local economy.  We look forward the 2018 OSU Extension Ag Lender Seminars next Fall.

2017 Crop Enterprise Budgets from OSU Extension

Budgets are extremely valuable now that profit margins are narrow.  Every expense item and revenue option needs scrutinized.   Barry Ward, OSU Extension, has published the 2017 crop enterprise budgets to help.  The budgets are downloadable MS Excel spreadsheets that have a place for Your Budget right beside some samples with yield ranges and the opportunity to adjust revenue and expenses “on paper.”
