What Can I Do in the Winter to Keep My Farm Successful?

Submitted by Anonymous (not verified) on

Winter months may be slower than planting or harvest, but that does not mean there is not stuff to be done. Staying busy during the winter months helps to set yourself up for a successful new year.

Winter Planning on Your Farm


Review records and maintain complete bookkeeping.

Farm records and bookkeeping are a very important part of any farming operation. While records and books should be kept up to date throughout the entire year, winter is a great time to ensure everything is up-to-date and correct. Having your records up to date makes it quick and easy to send your current balance sheet numbers to the bank or other financial institutions, as well as be ready to work on your taxes.


Service and repair key farm equipment.

Routine service is imperative to keep your John Deere equipment operating at peak performance. Servicing your equipment in the wintertime helps to ensure all the fluids are fresh and clean, as well as at capacity when it is time to head to the field again. Use this time with the equipment in the shed to look over the key wear pieces and repair any issues you come across.  By taking care of these critical tasks in the winter, you can take advantage of many off-season programs and ensure that a technician is available (not always the case when things are busy in the field).
