Purpose

The AgriProfit$ program provides good business management information to farm operators, so they can make better business management decisions. Good information is the most important step in managing for profitability.

Participants receive:

  • a detailed financial analysis of their farm
  • a detailed economic analysis by enterprise (i.e. cow/calf enterprise, cereal and oilseeds enterprise)
  • production costs and returns on a per unit of output basis (i.e. per bushel, per tonne, per pound weaned)
  • production costs and returns on a per unit of investment basis (i.e. per acre, per cow)
  • benchmark reports comparable by region, soil zone, size and type of operation, etc.
  • long-term participants receive their own benchmark report to assess the performance of their farm business and enterprises over time.
  • AgriProfit$ applied research information and bulletins

Is there a cost to participate?

No! This program is free-of-charge.

Participation only requires your valuable time when providing farm information for your analysis. If “all good things take time”, then good management information is well worth the time producers invest.
