PLANNING ahead is vital for any business, but a recent survey by a major bank worryingly revealed that fewer than half of Britains farmers prepare even a simple budget.
This was one of the reasons that prompted David Neill, a partner at the Andersons Centre and a farm business consultant, to develop ABC Quickplanner in conjunction with FARMERS WEEKLY and Farmplan Computer Systems.
“There is clearly a need for a simple farm budget planner. Many of the current packages are not that easy to use.
“I think a lot of farmers are getting so bogged down with detailed cash flow projections they cant see the bigger picture.”
ABC Quickplanner – price 95 – allows stock and arable producers to enter proposed cropping and stocking regimes which it then analyses to calculate potential gross margins and profitability.
Andrew Westrope, who helped develop the program, says it is designed to be used by all farmers irrespective of computing ability.
Anybody interested in this unique system can give it the once over at next weeks Agrivision show.
