This is a free, “hands-on” workshop for members of the Maine Beef Producers Association who are interested in establishing a record keeping system using QuickBooks Pro™ Desktop. This workshop is for those with no-to-minimal experience using QuickBooks. Participants should bring their own laptop (PC or Mac), but it is not required. Producers who bring their own laptop will download the software onto their computer at the beginning of the workshop.

Participants will receive the QuickBooks software (a $200 value) free! If you already own the software, you can still attend, but we will provide the software to someone else. If you use a desktop computer, you may still receive the software, but will be asked to follow along with a buddy for the training.
