Farm budgeting, Gross margins analysis, Farm accounting, Annual cash flow, Annual expenses
This booklet outlines the current cost structure and profitability of a farm in the eastern wheatbelt. Rather than being figures for an 'average farm', they reflect the use of practices widely recommended by the Department of Agriculture on a typical property in the area. This does not mean the Department of Agriculture believes every farm in the area should be run this way. The best way to run any particular farm depends on the resources and objectives of that farmer.
