Center for Farm Financial Management

FINPACK for Ag Professionals

Financial planning and analysis software made simple

FINPACK’s origins are in education.  It was created to provide a tool to teach financial management and farm planning concepts through application on individual farms.  FINPACK provides tools to teach farm business analysis, cash flow planning, and long range financial planning, all in one software package.  Teach financial management while you help farmers and ranchers solve real world problems.

Today’s farm managers are often their own chief financial officer.  But few have any financial management training.  FINPACK teaches financial management through real world application.  It is not an accounting system; instead it provides tools to put farm records to use to evaluate financial opportunities and make informed decisions.

FINPACK for Professionals is used by hundreds of educators in Extension, farm business management programs, community colleges, and on university campuses. FINPACK for Professionals is also used by other ag professionals at accounting firms, consulting firms, and other private institutions. Ask about our "Computer Lab" version for classroom teaching.
