Snow College offers a Farm/Ranch Management program to assist farm/ranch families in achieving their business and personal goals by improving the profit- ability of their business.

The program teaches farmers and ranchers to keep detailed computerized financial and production records and to use these records in making timely and intelligent business decisions. Some computer literacy is also taught. The focus is on education and not merely a “bookkeeping service.”

The program is designed to be spread over two to three years, depending on the farm/ranch family’s business skills and business management objectives and goals.  Farm/ranch families may enroll at any time during the year, but it is recommended that they enroll at the beginning of their financial year.  Instruction is two to three hours once a month (more if necessary) one-on-one at the farm/ranch site with some group instruction to discuss and give instruction on topics of common interest.   All financial and production records and other information is kept strictly confidential.

Management of a farm/ranch is primarily a decision making process.  To be successful in management and decision-making processes, the course is composed of various units taught in an organized sequence.  Approximately 135 contact hours are required to complete the program.

Students who complete courses in Farm/Ranch Management will be expected to demonstrate that they:
