Better Decisions: In bad times, good management is your most important asset

Good communications with your staff, good planning and a positive attitude take on additional importance when the going gets tough


Hardly a day goes by when you do not read or hear from the media that agriculture is on the brink of collapse and that soon we will have to rely entirely on food produced offshore. These stories all have merit and no one can argue that agriculture is not facing difficult times. Some commodities are having a harder time than others, but overall agriculture is a threatened industry. In bad times, one thing for certain is that if farmers fail to recognize that their employees are their most important asset, things will go from bad to worse.
