Calculating least-cost machinery size for grain farms using electronic spreadsheets and microcomputers



Calculating least-cost machinery size for grain farms using electronic spreadsheets and microcomputers



Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics 33(1): 47-65



Proper machinery sizing for a given farm has the potential of reducing costs and thereby increasing profits substantially. The microcomputer and the electronic spreadsheets now available are the latest tools farm business managers can use to solve this recurrent, complex and important problem. This paper finds the least-cost combination of machinery taking into account fixed, variable and timeliness costs. The model is solved using a microcomputer spreadsheet.
