SAMs 1.1.1. The “Texas Farm Business Management and Benchmarking Education and Outreach Alliance” (Alliance) is an interdisciplinary and multi-institutional collaboration. The Alliance is a partnership among Texas A&M University – Commerce (A&M – Commerce), West Texas A&M University (WTAMU), and regional Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service agencies. Alliance goals are to support the intellectual and collaborative efforts of regional farm institutions by supporting Texas farm management producers to solve agricultural and educational challenges. The Alliance will gather and enter information into the farm financial database, provide professional consulting services for farm financial management, business analysis, credit analysis, and financial benchmarking to agricultural producers, and disseminate studies from the resulting data and/or service provided to agricultural producers. The project will be divided in to an East Texas and a West Texas team. Each team of professional experts will operate individually in their regions, recruiting and providing consulting services to agricultural producers. The project will network with educational institutions, Extension Service agencies, credit institutions, cooperatives, and/or outreach programs for agricultural producers to recruit farmers and ranchers of all sizes, collect information, and provide consulting services that address their farm management needs for a variety of crops and animals. Outputs include high quality farm financial data and analyses. This project will provide agricultural producers with benchmarking tools, strategies, and farm financial analysis and increase awareness of the National Farm Management Center and Database and relevant software (FINPACK and IFSaM).
