UNH Cooperative Extension is accepting registrations for its Agriculture and Natural Resource Business Institute (ANRBI). Those interested in starting or expanding an agricultural or natural resource business are encouraged to attend this weekly course, which starts September 12 continuing through December 5.
ANRBI provides individuals and families who want to start or expand agricultural or related business with the essential preparation they need to be successful. Collaborating with industry partners, Extension experts will help participants develop an operating plan for their new or existing business.
Topics addressed will include production systems, soils, resource assessment, product and service marketing, enterprise profitability, as well as legal matters relevant to agriculture and related businesses.
Participants will explore the human dynamics of running a family business, dealing with conflict and time constraints. They will also learn how government agencies and financial institutions work with farm and natural resource firms. Upon completion, graduates will have established connections to a variety of advisors and technical experts.
ANRBI meets USDA Farm Service Agency borrower training requirements. CEUs (Continuing Education Units) through the UNH Professional Development and Training program have been applied for.
Weekly classes will take place Mondays from 6:00 to 9:00 p.m. at the Granite State College in Concord, NH. Registration cost is $200 per individual or $300 for two people from the same farm. To register go to http://bit.ly/anrbi2016
