Poultry Farm Business Summary: New York 1967
Poultry farm business management projects have been sponsored by the New York Extension Service for a number of years. Again this year, the reports submitted have been summarized by the Department of Agricultural Economics at Cornell, and the group averages are included in this report. The accounts summarized here are not enterprise accounts. They are accounts of the 26 farm businesses including, in some cases, substantial non-poultry items. These are reflected in the inventory, cost and receipt totals and tend to make fully realistic enterprise analysis difficult. The report is prepared in workbook form. It is organized so that it provides a systematic way of summarizing and analyzing a poultry business. Spaces are provided so that you can fill in the figures for your farm. Space has also been provided for forward planning into 1968. Managing a poultry farm today is a complex job. One must use the best tools and information available. Well-kept records, properly summarized and analyzed, serve as an effective management tool. It is hoped that this farm business summary workbook will be of help to you and other poultrymen in your efforts to improve the management of your farms.
