11/03/2017 - Rancher Unit Cost Production Workshop In Chadron

A series of two-day workshops in November and December at several Nebraska communities, including Chadron, will provide a hands-on learning experience for producers to learn how to calculate a unit cost of production for a cow-calf operation. Workshops will also be held in Kimball, O’Neill and North Platte.
Workshop participants will work through a sample ranch to determine the profitability of four common types of ranch enterprises: cow-calf, stockers/breeding heifers, hay, and land. Participants will go through the steps of analyzing costs and calculating what it costs to produce a unit of product for each enterprise. They will also learn how to identify changes that could improve ranch profitability.
Nov. 3 and 4 at Chadron: Chadron State College, 9:00 am-4:00 pm MDT. Contact Jack Arterburn at 308-327-2312 or jack.arterburn@unl.edu.
Cost is $50 per person and covers meals for both days. Please pre-register one week prior for a meal count. Payment is due the day of the workshop. Workshops are limited to 30 people per location. Contact Aaron Berger at 308-235-3122 with questions about the workshops.
