Ohnward Farm Management
"Outside Professional Management can be the Difference between a Strong Survivor and Not Surviving at All."
Today's complex agriculture business involves ever-increasing amounts of capital and risk. That combination means management is a more critical input every year. More disparity is showing up each year in the financial well-being of farm operations strictly as a result of the capability of management. Outside professional management can mean the difference between being a strong survivor and not surviving at all.
Traditionally, the professional farm manager has been most used by absentee landowners, widowed landowners and property owners for investment purposes. Today however, full-time farmers may benefit as well.
Since everyone has different reasons for owning land, their management objectives will differ. Our management representatives will sit down with you to discuss your specific objectives and outline a workable management plan to achieve those objectives. These plans may include landlord tenant arrangements, cash rental agreements, customer farming operations and others. These farming plans can then be put into a crop and livestock plan showing cash requirements, cash budgets and income projections.
In carrying out the annual plan, your management professional can work with you to:
- Prepare and service farm leases and agreements
- Collect rent or proceeds
- Arrangements for capital improvements and repairs
- Supervise the purchase of production inputs
- Crop rotations, chemical and pest management
- Knowledge and experience in commodity markets
- Access to market advisory services
- Frequent farm visits
- Monthly and annual financial statements
Whatever level of farm management you desire, we can provide the expertise and assistance needed. Most farm owners and operators utilize our farm managers for complete annual management services.
