Knowing annual cow costs is the foundation for evaluating and making management decisions that can improve profitability for a cow-calf enterprise. Significant increases in input costs are challenging producers to examine the cost of production and identify where there may be opportunities to adjust the production system. Calculating costs and breaking them into categories helps understand where changes might help.
Nebraska Extension will be hosting a webinar series on Monday and Thursday evenings in late January and February that will explain the fundamentals of knowing and calculating annual cow costs.
Topics include:
• Understanding economic unit cost of production for the cow-calf enterprise.
• Recognizing the value and cost of both grazed and harvested feed.
• Calculating cow depreciation and replacement development costs.
• Figuring the cost of equipment and labor utilized in the cow-calf enterprise.
• Examining breeding expenses and evaluating the value and cost relationship.
• Reviewing benchmark cost and production data to see how your operation compares.
The webinar series is $60 per person and includes a resource workbook. The course will be limited to 30 participants.
