Cost of Production Calculator

Whether you’re a producer or processor, starting a new business or growing your existing one, knowing how much it costs to raise, grow or process your product is very important to increase efficiency and overall profitability of your business.

The new venture specialists with Alberta Agriculture and Forestry have created an e-learning tool on cost of production. This series will introduce to you the concept of cost of production and discuss three key areas: (1) the importance of knowing your cost of production (COP); (2) understanding COP, and (3) using COP for decision making.

The calculator will include three example scenarios to help put these new learnings into practice as you calculate your own cost of production: (1) a vegetable growing operation; (2) a value-added food processing enterprise, and (3) a meat (beef) processing venture. Currently only the vegetable scenario is available for viewing, but the complete tool will launch this winter with all three scenarios.

An introduction to this e-learning tool can be found on the Ag-Info Centre-New Venture website:$department/deptdocs.nsf/all/inf12059 and on the Biz info website:$department/deptdocs.nsf/all/bdv11351
