CBBC Purebred Producer Cost of Production (COP), Product Pricing and Benchmarking Workbook
One key to long-term profitability in the cattle business is to analyze and manage production costs. There is no greater risk to business success than a lack of profitability; banks demand profitability, and families need it.
This unique COP workbook is tailored specifically to purebred beef cattle producers. It is an interactive tool providing both key cost-analysis and benchmarking functions. It can help you manage your production costs, make the most of available resources. The information tracked and evaluated through this tool allows you to make informed decisions, evaluate the return on investment and profitability of each aspect of your purebred cattle programs, and plan for the future. The tool has the option for producers to anonymously provide relevant data to CBBC to help update national benchmarks. Details are contained within the tool and the tutorial video.
Purebred Sales Reporting Workbook
This Purebred Sales Reporting Workbook provides a tracking tool to capture annual purebred sales. This provides a handy sales reference tool for producers and the information it captures is critical to help establish sector benchmarks.
Lenders have confirmed to CBBC they require third party verification if they are to recognize the appropriate value of purebred cattle. Currently, all cattle in Canada are generally assessed at commercial values only. The tool has the option for producers to anonymously provide relevant data to CBBC to help confirm and validate the inherent higher value of purebred cattle. Details are contained within the tool and the tutorial video.
CBBC will post national sales information to our website to help substantiate cattle values with lenders, insurance companies and government programs.
