If you live in Texas and are interested in doing a standardized performance analysis (SPA) of your operation, there are several workshops being conducted across the state by the Texas Agricultural Extension Service to help you. SPA is a tool that provides an opportunity to analyze your ranch from both a production and financial side. This thorough analysis allows you to compare your operations performance between years, producers, production regions and production systems.

Early registration is necessary so you can receive guidelines to organize your data to bring to the workshops.

For more information, contact Jim McGrann at (979) 845-8012.
