Dairy Farm Business Summary: Four County Area: Cayuga, Onondaga, Madison, Oswego
The County Cooperative Extension Associations in New York State have enrolled dairy farmers in farm business management projects for a number of years. For 1969, fourteen farmers in Cayuga, Madison, Onondaga, and Oswego Counties submitted their records for summary and analysis by the Department of Agricultural Economics. The figures for each farm were checked, put on electronic data cards, and put through a computer for summary and analysis. The group results are presented in this workbook. This report is organized so that a farm business can be systematically summarized and analyzed by going through the report page by page. Spaces are available for filling in the figures for your farm or any farm that may be under study. This workbook may be used by a farm family to study their business or it can be used by a group as a basis for a farm management discussion. In addition to the members of the Farm Business Management Projects, this report should be useful to other dairymen in Central New York, to teachers of agriculture, other agency representatives, and to agribusinessmen in the area.
