Since 1991, Watts Price Accountants has compiled detailed analysis of profitability and performance of our Wimmera broad acre cropping farm clients through in-house Farm Key Performance Indicators (KPI) Reports.

Wimmera Farm Performance Reporting is a unique service to the Wimmera as Watts Price Accountants is the only Wimmera accounting firm specialising in Farm Profit analysis and appraisal. Such reporting is then made available to farm clients and rural service providers to assist with decision making to profit improvement and long term resilience.

How can the Wimmera Farm Performance Reporting help you?

It will help answer questions like:

  • How profitable is your farm?
  • Is leasing farm land a sound option?
  • Is farm land purchase more profitable at the current prices?
  • How is your farm performing in comparison to farms in your area and other areas?
  • What aspects need your attention to improve long term liability?
  • Strategies to improve your interest/financing costs?
  • Do you want a clear guidance on your farm performance using 5 year rolling averages as a comparison with other farms and the Top 20% profitable farms surveyed?

We monitor farm profitability to provide feedback on how on farm assets owned, share-farmed or leased are really performing. This can provide valuable insight into farm purchasing, share-farming and leasing decisions.

We monitor the leading financial indicators (KPI’s) that the banks focus on when making lending decisions. This means our report is a valuable tool for discussion when arranging borrowing facilities.

We calculate labour, plant and farm land productivity as well as asset turnover which provide valuable insight into how productive your farm operation is compared to other farms. This in turn can provide a guide to change and improvement.

The Wimmera Farm Performance Reporting provides five year rolling averages of 17 important key performance indicators (KPI’s) which are calculated for your region, for the median farm and the Top 20% most profitable farms in our Wimmera survey.
