Each year local and regional reports are generated from individual farm records from farm producers who are enrolled in Farm Business Management programs across Minnesota. Other reports are compiled with the cooperation from other States such as North Dakota in the Red River Valley report. The current financial status of farm operators and net returns from various crop and livestock enterprises are reported.
Farm producers can use these reports to compare their operation to others in the region and state and to determine their own strengths and weaknesses of their farm business. Other individuals such as agricultural lenders, instructors and consultants should also find this information useful.
The reports are based upon data generated by FINPACK software, developed by the Center for Farm Financial Management, University of Minnesota Extension Service.
The Minnesota Regional reports are made available by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities system and are compiled and checked for accuracy by Ron Dvergsten, Northland Community & Technical College, Del Lecy, Central Lakes College, Jim Molenaar, Ridgewater Community & Technical College, Al Brudelie, Minnesota West Community & Technical College and South Central Technical College, and Eric Deters, Riverland Community College, Regional Deans of Management Education. The Red River Valley report is compiled and checked for accuracy by Ron Dvergsten, Dean of Management Education, Northland Community & Technical College and Andrew Swenson, North Dakota State University Extension Service.
