Montana Farmer Helping Other Farmers
October 18, 2013 - Mitch Konen of Fairfield, MT sells and services Farm Works Software, which is a program designed to help producers handle the paperwork associated with agriculture. It can track costs and markets and allow producers to build a ledger as detailed as they want. It also has the ability to map fields and flag points of interest in those fields.

Producers can record soil and yield data, crop input job operations, chemical applications, track water management and surface drainage, record livestock data, and print off dozens of customized reports.

“I can input every dime, nickel and penny and allocate it where I want – to equipment, acreage, people, an enterprise of some kind, or somewhere else,” Mitch said. “Then I can review that data and know my operational and enterprise costs right down to the exact acre and bushel.”
