Tactical Management Course Offered Online for Producers

Ranchers and farmers can learn tactical management techniques to apply to their own agricultural operations in an online Western Integrated Resources Education (WIRE) course developed by the University of Wyoming’s Cooperative Extension Service (CES).

The second class in a three-part series will run from Jan. 12 to Feb. 13. To register, visit “What We Do” at www.uwyo.edu/agecon or contact John Hewlett, CES farm and ranch specialist in the Department of Agricultural and Applied Economics, at hewlett@uwyo.edu or (307) 766-2166.

WIRE teaches a concept of management that provides practical tools for integrating the physical, biological, financial and human resources of agricultural operations, according to Hewlett. The course emphasizes the process of management – setting goals and priorities, making decisions, planning, budgeting, keeping records and evaluating operations with personal goals and optimization in mind.

The beginning WIRE session on strategic management techniques ended in December, and a third course on operational management will be offered Feb. 16 to March 19.
