Introduction to Agribusiness Management
  • Management is the sole responsibility for decision making, and most likely will always be this.
  • Managers use economic principles, budgets, record summaries, investment analyses, financial statements.
  • Electronic innovations will most likely alter the types of information available to the manager.
types of farming operations
Types of Farming Operations
  • Low Volume, High Value Producers – Can’t expand so they produce higher valued products. Promotion and marketing become critical.
  • High Volume, Low Margin Producers – generic feed and food grain producers, oil seed. Expand their production to increase profitability.
  • Specialty Product and Service Providers – specialize in one or two skills and become the best at performing those services.
  • Part-time (Hobby) Operators – One half of operations, produce 15 percent of total ag sales

Financial Management
  • Outside capital will be needed to finance large-scale operations. Funds are starting to come from national markets due to the vertical integrations of rural banks.

  • Controlling assets is becoming more important than owning them.

Examples: animals size, leanness, why? Improved measuring devices and data processing will make it easier to pay differentials. In crop production protein and oil content of grain and forages will make pricing differentials possible.

The niche market will also become important.

Foreign markets will become more important as trade barriers fall.
