"Easy as Quicken . . . but made for farmers and ranchers."
T
he Evaluation Demo program is the complete "Farm Biz" Entry level Accounting program. Absolutely No Setup Required. Just install and enter your records. The Evaluation comes complete with a 269 page manual available for Printing or Viewing on Screen.

The "Farm Biz" Evaluation Demo is ideal for High School and College computer labs. A copy can be placed on each computer in the lab or on the students home computer.

"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 bookkeeping.

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 & operate "Farm Biz" on your computer. A free Farm Biz Demo CD is available . Shipping & handling charges are $15.

Please contact us, if you have the need for multiple CD copies for classroom distribution.
