Register now for Master Farm Manager Program

Jan 04, 2021


The University of Tennessee Extension Service is launching a new educational program called Tennessee Master Farm Manager. The course will educate attendees on solid business principles and efficiently utilizing resources on the farm.
Because of the COVID-19 pandemic the program will be conducted in Zoom based webinar sessions held on Thursday nights for eight weeks starting Jan. 21, 2021, at 7 p.m. EST/6 p.m. CST. Registered participants will be emailed a Zoom link and instructions the day before each session.
The class will focus on farm financial management. Topics covered will include understanding financial statements, business structure, lending, equipment purchasing, trade issues, recordkeeping, tax planning, lease agreements, and farm transitioning.
Any agricultural producer, regardless of location, may register for the Tennessee Master Farm Manager webinar series. As an additional benefit, Tennessee producers who have previously qualified for 50 percent TAEP cost share may utilize Master Farm Manager as a recertification.
Mail in registration ends Jan. 15, 2021, and online registration will remain open through Jan. 21, 2021.
More information and online registration can be found at www.MasterFarmManager.tennessee.edu or contact David Bilderback at (865) 200-4545 or db@utk.edu.
