Using Whole-Farm and Enterprise Records to Make Decisions

Whole farm records that measure both financial condition and performance, allow the owner, as well as a lender or other outside reader, to better understand how well the business is currently doing. An enterprise budget can help with a variety of business decisions, including: pricing, changing production practices, and product mix. This publication can aid in compiling good financial information, allowing owners to make better management decisions.
