THE MACS STORY
THE MACS STORY
My name is Russell D. Morgan. I am a Certified Agricultural Consultant (CAC) with a BS and MS in Agricultural Economics from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville. I have provided Farm Business Consulting, Farm Business Accounting, Income Tax Preparation and related services to farm and related businesses for over 30 years
Born in the mountains of Western North Carolina, my family moved to North Middle Tennessee where they operated dairy and tobacco farms. That upbringing instilled a strong work ethic, an appreciation of strong communities as well as faith-based personal and business integrity.
Upon completing my MS degree in Agricultural Economics from the University of Tennessee-Knoxville I worked as an Area Specialist in Farm Business Management with the University of Kentucky Extension Service. The majority of my responsibilities revolved around working one-on-one with farm businesses in the areas of farm accounting and business analysis, income tax management and other farm business consulting projects.
I separated service from UK Extension and began my private practice focusing primarily on farm business accounting, farm business consulting, payroll processing and income tax preparation. While I currently continue working in the income tax preparation field, I have significantly contracted the size of that business. I launched MACS to focus on areas of amplified need in the increasingly-complex Agricultural Industry.
I would welcome the opportunity to discuss with you/your farm business how I can assist in any of these focused service areas:
- Farm Management Accounting System Design
- Farm Business Analysis (Financial/Economic)
- Farm Business Consulting
- Transition Planning
- Surrogate CFO Services
- Farm Peer Advisory Group Facilitation
- Board of Trusted Advisor (BOtA) Facilitation
I have Thirty + years Ag Consulting Experience. I have consulted with an array of farm businesses including:
- Field and oil crop farms
- Dairy farms
- Beef cow-calf and backgrounding farms
- Hog farrow-to-finish and contract finish farms
- Poultry farms - broilers, breeders and pullets
I earned my Certified Agricultural Consultant (CAC) designation from the American Society of Agricultural Consultants. I earned my MS in Agricultural Economics from the University of TN-Knoxville where I focused my education on Farm Management / Managerial Economics.
I am not affiliated with any business, lending group or organization selling products, financing or other services.
YOU are my client; I will work for YOUR benefit with single-focused purpose.
An advantage of remaining a sole & independent consultant is NOT being restricted to other members of a parent company if additional expertise is required. I have the flexibility and contacts to engage expertise in areas of production, technology or whatever specialty is needed.
