Inventory Basics for Meat and Livestock Operations
February 16 @ 9:30 am - 11:00 am
Join us for a free webinar!
Oh, inventory – the bane of many a small business, especially daunting when hawking meat. Why is it important? What kind of operations systems do you need to manage inventory well? How (and what) should you count? How do you set up a system that isn’t time-consuming or cost prohibitive, that you will actually use? What are you looking for when you see the numbers anyway? And how do you know when you need a fancy software system?
Join educators Olivia Tincani (SWGLA) & Mariam Furmanau (Bernoulli Finance) for this webinar, which will walk through the whys, whats, hows, and now whats of managing inventory, with a specific focus on time- and money-constrained small/mid-sized businesses. We will connect the dots between the two tax & accounting workshops to revisit how your inventory systems intersect your accounting methods. We will review physical systems for fresh and frozen inventory, and potential solutions — everything from clipboards to external customized software systems — and dive into understanding your necessary level of complexity.
This event is developed by the Southwest Grassfed Livestock Alliance, with support from the Quivira Coalition. And thanks to Mad Agriculture for support of these workshops as part of the Conservation Collaboration Grant.
