The Livestock Budget Estimator tool for Swine producers is designed to assist with budget planning for your pork operation. It is a Microsoft Excel based tool built around key areas that producers need to consider as they plan for and continually evaluate their production season. It combines in one place:
- Marketing Goals
- Production Goals (carcass or live weight)
- Break-Evens of:
- Net Farm Income
- Cash Flow
Also available within the tool are comparisons to other swine farms based on financial data obtained from the FINBIN database. FINBIN is one of the largest and most accessible sources of farm financial and production benchmark information. These farm financials provide an opportunity to determine similarities, areas of strength, and potential areas of improvement for your farm business.
