Here at the Business Management ABCs Group, we love a good challenge. As you know we love helping all sorts of business owners find success with great strategies for building and maintaining a solvent business.
Recently, we started setting up booths at farm and farm equipment trade shows. Because Indiana is such a strong agriculture state, and we’ve seen plenty of farmers struggle, we have started a group within Business Management ABCs Group that is focused on teaching our local farmers in Indiana how to be better at business.
THIS NEW ADVENTURE HAS BEEN A REAL EYE-OPENER
FOR MANY OF OUR EMPLOYEES WHO COME FROM THE CITY
It has also been an eye-opener for those of us that grew up in farming, but no longer walk that path.
You see, farming has become really high tech, and we are meeting owners of businesses like Precision Farming Solutions (http://precisionfarmingsolutions.net) who in their communities are providing amazing, high tech approaches to farming.
Not long ago, we met James and Grant from Precision Farming Solutions at a trade show and they gave us a better understanding of how farming has changed from a family tradition of sorts, to a business supported heavily by science and technology.
These guys are, in our minds, revolutionizing the farm and doing it in small town, Birdseye, Indiana.
THE SERVICES THEY PROVIDE RANGE FROM SOIL TESTING AND CROP
CONSULTATION TO AERIAL CROP IMAGERY AND FARM DATA MANAGEMENT
Honestly, for this old farm kid, listening to James and Grant talk about the cool, high tech products they provide to help their neighbors, there was part of me that wanted to farm again.
After a long conversation, and some great exchanges of information, we have a better understanding of what we need to do to help farmers improve their business success.
Our first step is to find more companies like Precision Farming Solutions that can help us and Indiana farmers jump head first into the new technology of farming.
If we can help their crops succeed, then we are half way to helping their business succeed as well.
