For many farmers the knowledge of working on the farm has come from the years of growing up there. They learned almost all they know from experience. But when it comes to business aspect of the farm, many may know the basics, but could use some formal education. That’s where state Senator Luther Olsen wants to help.
He co-authored a bill that would give business education grants to farmers to have them take a few courses at tech colleges. He understand the love the farmers have for what they do, but if they can’t run the business, the farm won’t be able to survive, and he wants to avoid that.
