Teagasc Management Data for Farm Planning Book Launched
A new Teagasc Management Data for Farm Planning book was launched by Tom Hayes TD, Minister of State at the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine on the Teagasc stand at the National Ploughing Championships in Laois today, Thursday, 26 September.
This publication provides detailed farm financial data to assist all involved in planning and analysing farm businesses. It includes budgets for livestock, crops, horticulture, and other farm enterprises. Information on taxation, social welfare, grants and schemes is also included.
Teagasc financial management specialist, and editor of the publication, James McDonnell said; “The budgets for the main enterprises are based on actual performance achieved on farm and measured through the Teagasc E-profit monitor farm management tool. The book also contains Teagasc National Farm Survey results which give a historical view of the overall income generated for the different farm enterprises.”
Head of Farm Management and Rural Development, Fintan Phelan, said; “With many farmers considering expanding their farming enterprise, and others considering setting up new businesses, or switching enterprises, this farm management data book provides guideline data to plan a successful business transition during a period of change.”
The Teagasc Management Data for Farm Planning 2013/2014 will be available to purchase from Teagasc, Oak Park from Monday, 30 September.
