Calculating Average Number of Head Per Year in a Feedlot Enterprise & Average Daily Gain/Total Gain Per Head (.xls) Jay D. Olsen, Instructor
Snow College, Richfield, UT
This preadsheet calculates the average number of head per year in a feedlot enterprise, as well as the average daily gain per head and the total gain per head for the feeding period. Jay uses the spreadsheet when working with students in entering their data into the FINAN Feedlot Enterprise for their enterprise analysis.
"Dairy Cash Price Required" Calculator (.xls) Ira Beckman, Instructor
South Central College
Jordan, MN
This is a spreadsheet used to determine what the cost required per unit is for a specific enterprise. The example given is a dairy. This may be significantly different than cost of production from the analysis, as term debt payments and family living are used instead of depreciation and value of labor & management. This can be used for historical information or for forward planning.
Illustration Technique:How a Loan Payment is Not an Expense Jay Stretcher, Instructor
Morgan Community College
Colorado Springs, CO
"I illustrate how a loan is not an expense when it is paid back by giving my student a dollar bill and then asking for it back. I ask my student if I have had any income and if they have had any expense when it is given back."
Management Checklist Paul Gorman, Instructor
South Central College
North Mankato, MN
The checklist is inserted each year in the front cover of his students' FBM portfolios. Students know what is coming up and what topice/issues will be covered during instructional farm visits. It can also be helpful as a presentation and recruiting document.
Promoting Your Program with "Harvest Bags" Jennifer Smith, Instructor
Riverland Community College, Kenyon, MN
"Farm Business Management instructors can promote their program by assembling "Harvest Bags" to distribute to farmers out in the fields during harvest season. Working with area businesses, instructors can collect small handy items such as gum, Lifesavers, granola bars, pen and notepad, and the istructor's magnetized business card in a small collapsible cooler, along with information about the FBM program."
