Is Your Farm Operation Over-Capitalized?

Another component of financial risk is over-capitalization.

You have to understand what part of your operation is capitalized and what part is focused on producing revenue assets. This ratio is called the turn-over ratio – for every 1 million dollars of assets – what percentage is turning over into gross-revenue every year. A great target is $400,000 or 40%. This money is what you use to pay off your debt, pay yourself, and feed your family.
