WIRE (Western Integrated Resource http://www.uwagec.org) teaches a concept of management which provides practical tools for integrating management of the physical, biological, financial and human resources of agricultural operations.
WIRE emphasizes the process of management--setting goals, priorities, making decisions, planning, budgeting, keeping records and performing evaluations with personal goals and optimization in mind, rather than particular production technologies. The process begins by setting goals, which provides the manager with a clear focus on what he/she wants to accomplish through the operation and a view of how it can be done.
The program began in Wyoming, but is rapidly spreading to
other states. To learn more about the WIRE program and offerings near you, follow the
