Mind Your Farm Business – Ep. 73: Effective managers: the why, when and how of consulting

When you are managing a farm or agriculture business of any size, some areas may feel more daunting than others, or you quickly realize where strengths are and which avenues could benefit from outside help. That’s when it’s time to hire consultants.

There is no shortage of consultants specializing in a variety of topics including everything from agronomy, succession planning, marketing, and more, all of which are aimed at helping you, the producer. But which avenue will prove to be the most valuable for you?

Today’s guest on the Mind Your Farm Business podcast is Dwight Mihalicz of Effective Managers Inc.. Mihalicz has a strong career in consulting and has some practical advice on the why, when, and how, you would engage a consultant in your farm business.

Consultants aren’t only relevant to large farming operations, either, as there are plenty of firms and individual professionals who cater to small and medium size businesses as well.

In this Mind Your Farm Business, we look at how to find the right consultant for your business, how to manage expectations, what to look for and how to sift through the large cross-section of consultants who are advertising for your business.
