Excel workshops planned for farm, ranch business operators


Kansas State University will hold 2013 Excel Workshops in January and February.

"Many farmers and ranchers grew up learning how to repair equipment or calculate proper fertilizer rates, but not everyone grew up knowing how computers and particularly, the latest Excel tools can help them in their businesses," said Rich Llewelyn, Extension assistant in K-State's Department of Agricultural Economics. "This training will be helpful to both the beginner and the more experienced Excel user, and includes hands-on activities so each participant will be able to create his or her own spreadsheets."

Dates, locations and contact information for the workshops, which are hosted by K-State Research and Extension, include:

Jan. 25--Wamego, Highland Community College, 500 Miller Drive, Austin Sexten, 785-457-3319 or; and

Feb. 21--Troy, Doniphan County 4-H Building, 211 N. Boder St., Mindy Young, 785-985-3623 or

Each workshop begins with registration at 9 a.m. The program begins at 9:30 a.m. and ends at 3 p.m. The agenda varies slightly by location, but generally includes an introduction to Excel; spreadsheets for estimating machinery costs; crop budgets; principal and interest payments; adjusted weaning weights; and an introduction to tools on K-State's Extension agricultural economics website Time is built into the workshops for questions and answers.
