Poultry Farm Business Summary: 1986
Ackerman, Stewart E.; Park, Kristen
Large nonfarm businesses usually prepare and publish an annual report in which they review and analyze the business for the year. This provides a basis for evaluating past operations and for making plans for the future. A similar summary and analysis is useful in managing a farm business. The Cooperative Extension business management projects provide farm operators with an annual business report which can be used much the same as nonfarm business annual reports. Poultry farm business management records have been summarized by the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at Cornell for a number of years. For 1986, 16 poultry producers sUbmitted records for summary and analysis. Extension field staff working with poultry producers collected summarized them. The summary workbook. the re figures for each farm sults are presented in and this Poultry farm businesses vary in organizational makeup. The farms included in this report were divided into two groupspoultry (egg production) only, and poultry and other enterprises. This workbook is designed to provide a systematic summarization and analysis of a poultry business. The group averages can be used in making comparisons. Working through this report step by step provides a good checkup for a poultry operation. In addition to the persons whose records are in the summary, this report should be useful to other poultry producers in the State, to teachers of agriculture, college farm management instructors, agency representatives, and to agribusiness persons.
