Conducting an Initial Dairy Business Analysis

What are the key questions that reveal the strengths and weaknesses of a dairy business? DSC_0283The UVM Extension  Farm Viability team regularly meets farm managers for the first time with the goal of asking the right questions that will enable everyone to reflect on the business. We have just posted the Dairy SWOT Analysis Worksheet that we take out to the farm to guide the conversations.
