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 35 years
Mountain Bred / Farm Raised: Born in the mountains of Western North Carolina, my family moved to North Middle Tennessee where we 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 management team 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
- Remote CFO Services
- Farm Peer Advisory Group (FPAG) Facilitation
- Board of Trusted Advisor (BoTA) Facilitation
I have Thirty-Five+ 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.
