New cow-calf enterprise budget spreadsheet available

Downloadable Excel spreadsheet from University of Wisconsin can help with budgeting and analysis.

The University of Wisconsin has released a new Excel-based cow-calf enterprise budgeting tool which can be downloaded from the university's website.

The output of this tool can be used to establish benchmark data for the cow-calf operation, which provides information that can be used to identify strengths and opportunities for improvement.

The spreadsheet can also be used for doing projections, and looking at how potential changes can improve the cow-calf enterprise's cash flow.
