Principles and Strategies

Designed to teach the farm managers of tomorrow, Farm
Management
emphasizes the strategic and operations aspects of
managing a farm. Today?s farm managers will want to consult
it as well to improve the effectiveness, objectivity, and success
of their decisions.




This innovative textbook is framed by the increasing need for
farmers to develop and follow a business plan. Topics not found in
traditional farm management texts include: Strategic management;
How to evaluate, choose, and implement the business strategies that
best fit the farm and the farmer; Production and operations
planning; How to benefit from techniques and management tools used
in general business; Quality management and control that will
decrease costs and meet consumer demands; Production contract
evaluation; Decision making beyond the traditional microeconomic
analysis: decision making under risk and the development of
scenarios to understand the impact of an uncertain future.





Fundamental farm management topics and basics are not ignored in
this all-inclusive text. Traditional material includes budgeting,
marketing, enterprise selection, production planning, financial
analysis, financial management, investment analysis, risk
management, work force management, business organization, and
control management.


Student learning will be enhanced by review questions and a
glossary in the book. Other ancillary material: study notes,
virtual field trips, a test bank, class assignments, instructions
on how to produce local examples to complement the examples in the
text, and worksheets for students are available on the
author?s website or on a CD-ROM.
