This session includes an analysis of the Farm Financial Standards Council's (FFSC) recommended financial measures and ratios for agriculture. This session will review how each of the financial measures are calculated, what they reveal and what they don't reveal. Further, the session will help users understand the challenges and caveats of using these financial measures to understand an agricultural operation's financial strengths and weaknesses.
