Spring brings sunshine and rain, sprouting greenery, and a general reinvigorating of the spirit. It might be your favorite season, reminding you each year of what you love about farming. Spring also brings along a lot of emotion, especially for farmers. You might be feeling fearful, anxious or apprehensive about what the coming crop year brings.
Unfortunately, nobody knows what the future holds; uncertainty is the only certainty. But you can help combat some of those emotions with good planning. Take time before planting to lay out a road map for where you want to be and how to get there. Good, up-to-date financials are the key to giving you more realistic targets to shoot for.
Dean Heffta shares three things to do before planting to help you stay on top of your finances and create your plan for success this crop year, as he speaks with Dewey Nelson of KRVN.
