    Registration for Moraine Park Technical College's Farm Business and Production Management courses is underway.

    The courses emphasize all aspects of successful management and problem solving for today's farmer and other key management staff. Education is also a benefit to employees of off-farm agriculture related businesses. Instruction will take place both on the farm as well as in the classroom. It will focus on goal setting, business planning, record-keeping, crops, soils, credit management, insurance, financial planning and livestock nutrition.

    Instructor Phil Rasmussen conducts 10-12 classroom sessions, one afternoon per week, which will begin after the corn harvest. Serving Washington and Dodge counties, classes are tentatively planned at Mayville, Hustisford and a Washington County location to be selected at a later date.

    Dr. Fred Pumper, who also instructs the farm management courses, serves all of Fond du Lac, Green Lake and parts of neighboring counties.

    The cost to enroll in the Farm Business and Production Management courses is approximately $235.10 for new students. Tuition assistance grants are available to qualified persons.

    To register for classes or for more information, call Phil Rasmussen at 920-921-2673 or Dr. Fred Pumper, 920-923-0633. Information is also available at www.morainepark.com.
