1 Guidelines for Estimating Beef Cow-Calf Production Costs 2017 in Manitoba

3 Guidelines For Estimating Beef Cow-Calf Production Costs Based on a 150 Head Cow Herd Date: September, 2017 This guide is designed to provide you with planning information and a format for calculating costs of production of a cow calf enterprise in Manitoba. General Manitoba Agriculture recommendations are assumed in using feed and veterinary inputs. These figures provide an economic evaluation of the livestock and estimated prices required to cover all costs. Costs include labour, investment and depreciation, but do not include management costs, nor do they necessarily represent the average cost of production in Manitoba. These budgets may be adjusted by putting in your own figures. As a producer you are encouraged to calculate your own costs of production. Good management is assumed in that a balanced ration is being fed, livestock are on a herd health program and handling facilities are included. This tool is available as an Excel worksheet at: or at your local Manitoba Agriculure office. The Farm Machinery Custom and Rental Rate Guide is also available to help determine machinery costs. Note: This budget is only a guide and is not intended as an in-depth study of the cost of production of this industry. Interpretation and use of this information is the responsibility of the user. If you need help with a budget, contact your local Manitoba Agriculture office.
