New Livestock Compass Spreadsheet Available for Meat and Egg Producers

The Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems at the University of Wisconsin-Madison is offering a new Livestock Compass spreadsheet. The Compass Toolbox project has created a range of whole-farm profit management tools to help growers improve on-farm decision making and financial farm planning. The Compass Toolbox’s comprehensive spreadsheets facilitate the analysis of farm records using cost, sales, and labor data. The spreadsheet tools calculate the costs of production and the profitability of different market channels using a farmer’s financial data. The improved Livestock Compass for meat and egg producers is available online.
