Improved Meat Price Calculator Tool Available

The Cornell Program on Agribusiness and Rural Development announces that a new, improved version of the Cornell Meat Price Calculator (MPC) is available online for free use. The MPC, originally launched in May 2018, is a user-friendly online tool that allows farmers to set prices that ensure they reach farm financial goals. The new version, launched in March 2022, allows New York farmers to create a free account and save their data. This way, as their costs change over time, they can revisit the site and make adjustments to their pricing to maintain profitability goals. The MPC offers a user-friendly approach to account for production, processing, and marketing costs and then set prices to reach a profit goal. Cornell will offer workshops across New York on how to use the tool.
