The University of Minnesota is conducting a research survey for FBM participants. The purpose of the study is to gain insight into the participants approach to decision making and management of their farm operation. The types of questions that will be asked include how they got involved in farming, how they address areas of risk such as; production risk, market risk, financial risk, legal risk, and human resource risk. The survey will also ask about the decision making process and how producers utilize technology on their operation.
