"Farm Biz" was developed in cooperation with the Minnesota
Adult Farm Management Instructors and specifically designed for students
to transition from the "Farm Account Book" to home based computerized
While some instructors, because of cost, believe that spreadsheets or
programs like Quicken are the route to take, we have learned that students
grasp record keeping and enterprise analysis much quicker using "Farm
Biz". Therefore, instructors can devote their time to teaching family
goals and induce student ideas for new & improved farm management rather
than how to setup a chart of accounts or program a spread sheet.
"Farm Biz" is written in Microsoft's Access, thereby providing common
ground for the instructor to create additional statistics for classroom
charting and analysis. "Farm Biz provides the basics for migrating to
our more powerful "Ultra Farm" accounting program. "Ultra Farm" exports
directly to the "Finpack" program from the Farm Financial Center at the
University of Minnesota.
The complete demo program is 40 meg. Download
"Farm Biz" freeware. You need to have 80 meg free to install &
