IFMAPS

A free, confidential service helping Oklahoma farmers since 1985 (Oklahoma residents only)

Since 1985, IFMAPS has helped more than 5,500 farm families identify ways to improve their farm financial future. A call to IFMAPS leads to a meeting with a consultant at a time and place convenient for the producer, often at the producer’s home. New or different farm enterprises, asset restructuring, improving resource use, increasing income from off-farm work, developing more efficient management techniques, debt restructuring, liquidating farm assets partially or completely may be considered. IFMAPS specialists use information from producer’s records to develop farm budgets and financial statements. They then review the plans with producers. Farm families who receive IFMAPS assistance are better able to organize their financial information, evaluate this information, and make informed, realistic decisions about their operations. Producers say:

  • "It helps individuals look at their overall program and see what pays and what does not."

  • "It is a very good program. It puts information in order and perspective and makes it easier to understand."

  • "I think this program is a real plus to us. It makes farmers and ranchers sit down and figure out what is working in their operation."

  • "I think it’s a tool all of us in production need to use. It puts it on paper to see, what a lot of us assume we know. I appreciate what you are doing."
  • Call 1-800-522-3755 for more information or to schedule an appointment.
