Financial Business Analysis a Key to Improving Farm Profitability

The Illinois Farm Business Farm Management (FBFM) Association provides comprehensive farm and financial management analysis for operating farmers. Producers receive various computerized production and financial analysis reports about their operation. They also receive a comparative analysis report that compares their production and financial information with others that are similar in size, soil productivity and type of farm. Trend reports are also available that display long term trends in the farm business.

Specialized field staff assist producers in keeping good financial records and help them interpret financial reports about their business with the goal of improving farm profitability. Field staff also provide tax management assistance for the farming operation. On display will be examples of various reports along with the latest information compiled from the farm record data. Examples of computer software programs available through FBFM will also be available for demonstration.
