Setting Goals

Setting Goals

If you will be seeking loans for your farm operation, an outline of some of your short- and long-term goals will likely be part of the business plan you submit to a lender. Even if you will be funding the farm's start-up or growth yourself, it's important to have a clear sense of what you're trying to accomplish and how you'll get there. These goals should support and contribute to the values and mission you identified in prior worksheets.

Have each member of your planning team draft personal goals as well as one or more short-term and long-term goals for each functional management area of your business. It's important to share these with each other and talk through them to make sure that you all have agreement in key areas.

Hint: see example in the tutorial above
