Cattle in the Green Program series to be held in Postville

Cattle in the Green is a five-part series on farm business management designed to assist cattle producers with a new way of looking at management and economic decisions. Instead of the traditional focus on working harder, this series focuses on effective strategies to work smarter and more profitable.

“In this series, you’ll learn how to financially analyze your livestock/farm operation in a different way,” Denise Schwab, ISU Extension beef specialist said. “This will help you find more profit, eliminate money pits and lower your stress level.”

The five sessions are set for Jan. 17, 24 and 31 and Feb. 7 and 21. All will be held from 5:30 to 8:30 p.m. at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, 116 E. Military Rd, Postville. Because of the evening time, a light meal will be served.

Schwab said couples and business partners are encouraged to attend because gaining multiple perspectives on the cattle operation is always more powerful when planning and making decisions. A commitment to attend all five sessions is requested because each class builds upon the information and discussion of the previous session.

Registration is limited to 24 participants, so be sure to register by the Jan. 10 deadline by calling the Fayette County Extension Office at 563-425-3331 or emailing
