12 best practices of highly effective farmers


The Saskatchewan Ministry of Agriculture is proud to present a webinar entitled “The 12 Best Practices of Highly Effective Farmers.” This webinar will be held on November 26, 2103 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Webinars can be watched from the comfort of your home at the scheduled time or can be watched at a later point in time as each of our webinars will be archived.  All you need to do is visit https://www2.gotomeeting.com/register/693466346 to pre-register for the seminar and a link will be sent to your email to log onto the seminar at home at the said time and date. The live sessions will allow producers to ask the speaker questions which will be archived as well.

This particular webinar will feature Dr. Klinefelter, Ph.D., M.S., B.S. who is a Professor and Extension Economist at Texas AgriLife Extension and Texas A&M University. He is also the author and co-author of eight books and over 400 articles on management and finance. In 2013 Top Producer magazine listed him as one of the 30 innovators who have had the biggest impact on agriculture during the past three decades.

For the past two decades, Klinefelter has directed a program entitled “The Executive Program for Ag Producers (TEPAP)” which features the best farmers and ranchers in America. From these top farmers and ranchers, Klinefelter has culled 12 practices that these outstanding farmers and ranchers routinely follow. He will not only share these 12 best practices on this webinar but is convinced that any producer can implement these 12 practices to better improve their bottom line. “These are not necessarily the twelve best management practices, but they are twelve practices that any producer can do if madehe makes them a priority,” Klinefelter remarks. If someone is looking for ways to improve their profitability, this is a good way to start.

Klinefelter states that many people farm or ranch because they love growing things, they love animals or being outside or being independent, but not as many enjoy the financial, marketing and people management sides of the business.   Klinefelter says that’s exactly where producers need to focus. He will be listing practical ways to become more efficient and enhance your bottom line as a business. His list of best practices for farmers is gaining attention across the nation, some of which include benchmarking, prioritizing and following the 5% rule.  

If you are curious as to what differentiates top producers from the rest of the pack, pre-register for this exciting webinar.
