Payday is the day agricultural producers sell their commodities and livestock. Most of us, whether farmers, small businessmen, or employees, wish to earn the most for our efforts. The intent of this guide is to help producers calculate a profit objective price for their commodities in any given year based on that year’s farm mix of crops and livestock and on historical expense, income, and production data.

This record of accounts would go beyond just the information needed to complete income tax forms. An excellent set of records provides not only a historical account of the business, but also provides information that can be used for budgeting and planning.
