Extension Dairy Team to Teach Accounting Principles

10/19/2013 7:00 AM

The Penn State Extension Dairy Team is offering a series of webinar modules plus a hands-on workshop for producers to learn agricultural accounting principles using QuickBooks software.

This course consists of four learning modules, which will be released two weeks apart, beginning Nov. 8, with online instructor help sessions for an hour on the date of each release.

For those needing a refresher, or new to QuickBooks, a supplemental module on invoices and bills is also available for use.

The final portion of the course is a hands-on one-day training covering inventories, income statements from cash based reports, payroll, managing records for financial and tax-based needs, and participant-identified hot topics. Locations will be determined after participants have registered.

Cost is $150 per person or $225 for two people from one farm. This program is eligible for SmartStart credits from AgChoice Farm Credit.

To register, call 888-373-7232 or visit extension.psu.edu/animals/dairy to sign up online or download a mail-in form. Deadline is Nov. 7.
