Farm Business Management. Instructional Material, Year 1.
Hodgens, Jim; Myers, Leland
Designed to provide a basic core om instruction in teaching farm management in Oklahoma, this manual is intended for use in the first year of a three-year adult postsecondary program of instruction. The materials may also be used to teach producers currently engaged in production agriculture. Instructors are encouraged to supplement the instructional units with resource matter and people and to use concurrently the "Oklahoma Young Farmer Association Record Book." The thirteen Year I units focus on records and record keeping; the areas covered include orientation and introduction, record keeping, inventory, depreciation, enterprise accounting, enterprise budgets, cash flow, farm credit, partial budgeting, financial statements, income tax, income tax management, and year-end closing of records. Performance objectives, which form the basis of each unit, are given as both a unit objective, stating the subject matter to be covered in the unit, and as specific objectives, stating the student performance necessary to reach the unit objective. Each unit then provides some or all of these components: suggested activities for teacher and students, references, information sheets, assignment sheets with answer sheets, and visual aids. Units are planned for more than one lesson or class period of instruction. (YLB)
