Managing a Well-Established Business

We want to be able to measure where we’re at financially so we can manage our risk. People grow corn and say their breakeven is $3.00. But they don’t figure the farm utility bills. They don’t figure equipment cost per acre and per bushel. That’s what we want to know. K·Coe Isom brings the right team together so we get a global picture, not just of the farm, but also of the feed yard and livestock feeding. This is the financial know-how that helps us take our business to the next phase.

The people at K·Coe Isom are true professionals that know financials in the context of ag operations. They did a great job explaining the tax consequences and options. They made it understandable so we could get group consensus.
