MacGyver might have had the television show, but when it comes to working with what’s at hand to get a job done, few people are better at this than farmers and ranchers. We’ve become accustomed to improvising and making what we have work when the right tools or resources aren’t always available.
In fact, we’ve been doing this for years in the field and in the back office. When it comes to agricultural accounting, we’ve been using tools designed for standard business accounting despite the glaring differences.
While creativity and ingenuity on the farm are definitely assets, there’s plenty to be said for having the right tools for the right job, especially when it comes to efficiency.
