Understand Farm Cash Flow


Workshop audio recordings from the 2014 MOSES Organic Farming Conference.


Paul Dietmann, Badgerland Financial
Saturday III – 4 p.m.
How much cash flows into your farm operation each month or each year? How much cash flows back out? How much are you able to keep after all of the bills are paid? Cash flow is one of the most critical—and least understood—aspects of farm financial management. In this workshop we’ll do a deep dive into cash flow. We’ll show you how to analyze the sources and uses of your cash flow, how to project cash flow for the year ahead, and what to do in those months when there just isn’t enough cash to go around.
