OSU Farm Management

Howdy!

Here at The Ohio State University, President Lincolns vision in 1862 for land grant institutions to provide education and research to the masses is strong and prosperous. However, as President Kennedy vocally announced, there is always a new frontier to meet and face. Within the College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences and the Department of Agricultural, Environmental, and Development Economics, our goal is to provide farmers, ranchers, industry, elected officials and interested parties with information and tools that will guide in the development of business and political decisions. Supported by the Departments Mission Statement to generate and disseminate knowledge through application of economic and business principles to society's changes, the Farm Management Program is committed to support our stakeholders in the Food and Agriculture Production sector with relevant and timely information.

The Farm Management Program strives to address critical farm management issues affecting Ohio agriculture, including marketing and price analysis, farm financial management, risk evaluation, agricultural processing, environmental objectives, and farm entry and growth. The program serves a bridge between the Department, Ohio State University Extension and agricultural stakeholders. We are happy that you are interested in our work and hope to meet your needs. Within this tab there is information about Ohio farm finances and commodity budgets, tools for grain marketing, analysis of U.S. and world grain markets, basis tracking, county level agricultural impact statements, and representative farm analysis in select locations around the state. The Farm Management Program is overseen by Ben Brown, Program Manager and can be reached at brown.6888@osu.edu or 614-688-8686. 

Again we welcome you to our site and welcome any comments or suggestions.

Go Bucks!
