Farm Management

As accredited farm managers, Gene and Ernie have the education, skills, and experience to manage the day-to-day operations for farm and livestock owners. While you maintain control over your operation, they take on the responsibilities of planning crop and livestock production, marketing your commodities, maintaining your production records and accounting, and developing risk management strategies to help you operate a profitable and sustainable farm. They know how to apply sound business principles to maximize the return on the investments in the operation.

From planning crop selection and rotation to marketing your grain after harvest, Gene and Ernie build a lasting relationship based on trust and mutual respect. They understand that the farmers are the best source of information because they work directly in the field or with the livestock. By combining the farmer's first-hand knowledge with Heartland's management experience, we can maximize profit and improve the value of your operation.

It's all about giving you peace of mind. An unwavering assurance that the details are handled.  The certainty of having a dependable partner working for your success.  The confidence of knowing your investment is in the hands of experts.

An ASFMRA Accredited Farm Manager, both Gene and Ernie have achieved the highest level of professionalism and education in the industry.
