Lots of driving this week, as I travelled to Southwest Wisconsin Technical College for a Program Review. Worked with Dean Derek Dachelet and his Business Industry and Services Team (B&IS). Their Farm Business & Production Management Program includes on-farm consulting as part of the open enrollment courses they attend. Real solution training! B&IS utilizes State Grants to support business training, but businesses pay at least 30% of the training and staff are building a five-year financial self-sufficiency plan.
