Abstract

This research assesses how managers of farms with more than one million dollars in gross annual revenue evaluate strategies and allocate time. We find that farm managers place greater emphasis on controlling costs and managing production as strategies for success. Interestingly, very few producers spend most of their time controlling costs. As farmers get larger, managers are more apt to find managing people an important strategy and use of time.
