Connecting with Farmers in Carlyle, Illinois

by Water Street Solutions December 15, 2010

2010 Dec 15 Carlyle Winter Meeting 029 Today we held our 5th Profitability Planning Workshop with growers in the Carlyle, IL area.  Attendees learned about the importance of understanding financial metrics and using those numbers to make important farm financial decisions.  Information was also shared on the changes coming in crop insurance and why farmers should choose the right experts to help them mesh crop insurance with their commodity marketing.

A discussion about estate planning focused on the importance of having those tough, sometimes emotional discussions that lead us to make our plans to transition the farm to the next generation.

Water Street Solutions has seven more of these meetings coming up in January.  We'd like you to join us.  Click on the Profitability Planning Workshops button on our home page and RSVP.
