AgriProfit$ Business Analysis and Research Program - Signup to Participate

The AgriProfit$ Program includes beef, crop, dairy, greenhouse and beekeeping enterprises.

All Beef and Crop Operations, please note that participation in the AgriProfit$ Program requires:

  • The collection of data needed to conduct the business analysis including your assets (building, equipment, land investment), liabilities, expenses, revenue, labour, and crop and feed rations and inventories. (i.e.: general ledger, financial statements, tax returns, farm record books); opening and closing inventory, production, sales, and purchases by commodity (breeding, weaned, backgrounding, crop/ forage / pasture type).

  • Considering the farm business as a whole system and looking at how each enterprise (cow-calf, backgrounding, forage, pasture, crops…) contributes to the whole picture. Thought must be given to allocation of shared expenses and labour to enterprise activities.

  • Most benefit from participation comes with commitment of time. Upon signup, a business specialist will be contacting you to arrange an on-farm visit between January and March. Collecting data in advance of the visit can help ensure we use your time as efficiently as possible.
