Damon also details FarmBooks, the platform designed by Pipestone Business to provide pork producers with the detailed financial information they need to proactively manage their operations. He explains how the program came to be and what value it provides on the farm.

This episode also reminds producers to review key items and offers ideas to improve reporting. Listen in to learn how the team at FarmBooks works with producers to provide reliable financials for an entire operation, not just the pork entity of an operation.
