Webinar Replay: The 5% Rule w/ Kristjan Hebert

Nick Horob

At Harvest Profit, we are big fans of The 5% Rule.

This philosphy orginates out of Texas A&M’s The Executive Program for Agricultural Producers.

In simple terms, if you can make 5% improvements to the following areas of your farm it can easily lead to 100%+ improvements in farm profitability.

  • Yield
  • Price
  • Expenses

In farming, hitting “singles” in each of the three ares above can generate Grand Slams for your farm’s profitability.

You can see more of our thoughts of The 5% Rule here.

We hosted a webinar with Kristjan Hebert where he discusses this and much more. See the replay below.
