- Enterprises – Who Are Your Winners & Losers? Introduction to the Rutgers Cost Accounting Spreadsheet
- This webinar will explain how to use user-friendly software to develop enterprise budgets. It uses Microsoft Excel and is distributed by Rutgers University to develop an enterprise budget showing costs and returns for each crop that you produce. The spreadsheet uses information that you already have on hand from your accountant: income statement (or Schedule F) and balance sheet. The spreadsheet then generates the costs and profitability of each crop. Thus, you know which crops are winners and losers; thus, giving you information to make decisions on pricing, reducing unprofitable production costs, and increasing sales of profitable crops.
The program also calculates the percentages of each overhead cost, 17 key financial ratios, and a cash flow statement to allow you to plan for your monthly cash flows.
In addition to analyzing your actual costs, you can use the spreadsheet as a planning tool to analyze the impact of increased costs and prices as well as changes in marketing mixes, or other changes you are considering in your business. The spreadsheet can also be used to enter pro forma data for a future farm business.

As communities and regions look to innovative models for economic and community development, the cooperative model, and particularly networks of cooperation have emerged as a strategy to build local ownership and wealth. The story of rural electric cooperatives across the United States is a story about the power of self-help networks. Doug Miller of Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives will share how the rural electric co-op community has built connections among local cooperatives, state and national organizations, and co-ops of cooperatives to support over 900 rural electric co-ops serving over 50% of the nation’s landmass.
