  5. Types of SAEs • Exploratory • Entrepreneurship • Placement • Improvement • Supplementary • Analytical • Experimental

  6. Exploratory • Short duration, usually fits beginning students well • Helps students become literate in agriculture • Learn of possible careers • What are some examples of an Exploratory SAE??

  12. Analytical • Students choose an agricultural problem not easily tested by experimentation • Students gather and evaluate data • Example: • Marketing plan for poinsettia crop

  13. Experimental • Students conduct an agricultural experiment using the scientific method • Example: comparing effects of different types of dog food on dogs’ health

  14. Scientific Method Background Research- look through data, and other experiments performed. Purpose- What is the purpose of this Experiment? Hypothesis- Educated guess of what you think the outcome of your experiment will be. Procedure- How are you going to carry out this experiment? Experiment- Actually perform the experiment(s)

  15. Scientific Method cont. Analysis- look over the data that you have collected during the experiment. What happened? Conclusion- end the experiment by seeing whether or not your outcome matched your hypothesis what happened if they didn’t match up? Review of Literature- a report of previous work that pertains to your project background information that you used as you designed your project.

  25. Current Assets • Current assets: Items that can quickly be converted to cash or that will be sold within 12 months • Examples: harvested crops, feed, market livestock and poultry

  26. Non-Current Assets • Non-current assets: items that have a useful life of more than one year and are used in the business • Examples: Land, tractors

  27. Total Assets Total Assets= current assets + non-current assets Example: harvested crops + land = Total Assets

  28. Assets • Items of value owned by the student or owner • Key Words to look for: • Worth • Valued • Inventory • On Hand

  29. Liabilities • What the student or operation owes. • Example: Credit bill at a feed supply store. • Key Words to look for: • Owed • Another Company • Taxes

  30. Net Worth • Net Worth = total assets – total liabilities • Net worth is the same as?? • Equity

  31. Depreciation • The loss of value of an item. • Example: • A tractor worth $4,000 depreciates $250 per year, so after 5 years, how much would the tractor be worth? • $2,750

  32. Current Liabilities • Current Liabilities: accounts and notes payable, this year’s part of non-current liabilities -examples: car payment, credit card payments, power bills

  33. Non-Current Liabilities • Non-current liabilities: mortgages and other debts not due this year - examples: land/real estate mortgages

  34. Total Liabilities • Total Liabilities = current liabilities (debt) + non-current liabilities (debt) • Example: Total Liabilities = car payment + land payment

  35. Debt-to-Equity Ratio = Total Liabilities / Net Worth
