KIT CARSON, Colo. – Jan. 2, 2023. The Colorado Conservation Tillage Association has announced that it will host a Ranching for Profit workshop on Feb. 6 at the Burlington Community and Education Center in Burlington, Colorado.
The workshop will feature content such as identifying if a farm is a business or a low-paying and physically demanding job, exploring economics versus finance, discovering three strategies for increasing profit, identifying farm weaknesses, and building a plan to address issues.
Conducting the workshop will be Ranch Management Consultants’ Jordan Steele. Steele grew up on a cow-calf operation near Aladdin, WY before completing his master’s degree in agricultural economics at the University of Wyoming. After college, he worked for the Kansas Farm Management Association through Kansas State University for seven years, specializing in agricultural business recordkeeping, financial analysis and interpretation, and income tax preparation for farmers and ranchers in 17 counties of northwest Kansas. Steele now teaches Ranching for Profit Schools and facilitates the Executive Link program.
“The Ranching for Profit curriculum has benefited many CCTA members in the past,” said CCTA Coordinator Joni Mitchek. “We are excited to provide this opportunity for both farmers and ranchers in the High Plains region.”
The workshop will run from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. on Feb. 6 and serve as a precursor to the High Plains No-Till Conference on Feb. 7-8. Lunch will be provided, and registration costs are $17 per person.
Additional details and registration for both the workshop and High Plains No-Till Conference are available at www.highplainsnotill.com.
