BENTON, ILL.
   With lower prices and tightening profits on most farms there is no time like the present to fine tune financial records. Southern Illinois University Carbondale, University of Illinois Extension Unit 26, Jackson County Farm Bureau and Annie’s Project-Education for Farm Women is teaming up to present a program designed to give hands-on experience for farmers using QuickBooks™ to keep farm financial records.
   The three session course will be held February 21, 23, 28, 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., in room 214 of the Ag Building on the SIU Campus in Carbondale. Topics that will be covered include the basics of setting up asset, cash, and liability accounts, as well as making entries for cash accounts and customizing reports. The course will be taught by Dr. Jeb Asirvatham, Assistant Professor for SIUC Ag Business Education Department and Ruth Hambleton, Farm Management Instructor. 
   Hambleton, says “I regularly get requests for this kind of hands-on program through Annie’s Project especially where farm women are the principle keeper of the farm financial records.” She continues, “A program like this is beneficial to beginners as well as those who are already using QuickBooks™ and know there is so much more they can be doing with it.” The class will be interactive so participants should come with questions.
    Seating is limited as participants will be at computers learning to use Quick Books. Registration is required. Register online using this link:
