Most producers try to be good managers. But, for best results, you also must strive to be a good leader — someone others will want to work for, says Gary Snider, farm business consultant for Farm Credit of western New York.

Here’s a few of the traits which Snider commonly sees in a successful farm leader:
  • Delegates responsibility to others.
  • Has the ability to attract the right people.
  • Trains employees correctly from the start.
  • Remains visible and accessible to all employees.
  • Uses numbers to track, chart and manage the dairy farm business.
