FORAGE CROP BUDGETS FOR SOUTH FLORIDA, 1982


J.W. Prevatt and P. Mislevy


INTRODUCTION


Chaotic, complex and challenging are words that describe the unsettled
economic conditions facing Florida forage producers. Oscillating prices
for products due to fluctuating energy costs, interest rates, and inflation
have all added to the risk and uncertainty confronting decision makers on
forage production investments. These unstable economic circumstances coupled
with new technological developments and the usual production obstacles are
forcing producers to take a hard look at their production systems and be
increasingly aware of the factors that may affect the profitability of
their agricultural enterprise.
In order for producers to develop realistic budgets for costs and returns
evaluation they need data on forage production practices and costs. These
budgets present the basic research production practices and the cost informa-
tion necessary for producers to make informed management,decisions about
their forage production system.
The forage budgets developed in this publication represent estimates of
the costs associatedwith a particularforage using the indicated.production
practices. Although an effort was made to insure that the budgets are
reasonably accurate, individual producers do things a little (sometimes sub-
stantially) differently. Because of the wide variation of alternative inputs,
locations, and production systems, it is important for each producer to
develop his own budgets and understand how to utilize them when making

Ona.










management decisions. These general budgets provide a beginning for the
individual who wants to budget his specific operation.


FORAGE PRODUCTION


Despite the unstable economic conditions, Florida producers have
benefited from present research that has developed improved production system
and cultivars. Improved technologies are helping to overcome many major
production obstacles such as, disease and pest control problems, infertile
soil, rainfall variability, and a host of other problems. The basic intent
of forage production is, of course, to increase the productivity and profit-
ability of the Florida livestock industry.
Florida forage and livestock producers have more flexibility managing
forages than they do livestock. In fact, forage management actually provides
most of the flexibility that is possible in livestock operations. Decisions
about varieties of permanent forages, temporary forages that may be mixed or
matched with permanent forages, use of harvested forages for winter supplement.
tion, choice of cultural practice alternatives and forage production levels
are the essence of improving livestock production. Producers may be over-
run with hundreds of forage production management alternatives. Thus, many
considerations are necessary when evaluating and/or developing an efficient
and economical forage production system.
Planning livestock production may begin either with the requirements of
the livestock, or with the forage production resources (land, labor, manage-
ment, and capital). Both are of major importance and should be thoroughly
evaluated.
The prudent manager evaluates alternative forage production systems
based on the resources at his disposal (land, labor, capital and management)
to produce feedstuffs for a livestock enterprise. Likewise, after evaluating
the forage production alternatives a producer needs. to evaluate livestock
production alternatives. The last stepqselects a forage and livestock system
that effectively utilizes resources and will improve profits. A profitable
forage and livestock operation matches the seasonal forage production based
on quantity and quality to the nutritional requirements of,the livestock
enterprise.











Forage Budgets


The forage budgets presented in this publication represent those forages
commonly produced in South Florida. These budgets were developed from
research information and consultation with producers. The budgets were
processed on the computerized budget generator of the Florida Agricultural
and Resource Management Systems Laboratory (FARM Systems Lab) of the Food
and Resource Economics Department, University of Florida [14]. The computer-
ized budget generator provides consistent and easily modified budgets for
the many production alternatives.
After properly specifying the input information, the selected output
from the budget generator for each forage was developed and presented in the
tables as follows: (1) a production cost budget and (2) an itemized summary
budget of field operations and cost per unit of each asset used in the
production practice. Reviewing these tables allows the user to identify
similarities or differences in his production system.


Production Codt Budget


The production cost budgets include the operating (variable) and owner-
ship (fixed) costs for producing each forage. The sum of operating and
ownership costs represent the total cost of producing the forage crop [13].
Current information for calculating operating and ownership costs were
furnished by producers, agribusiness representatives and Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences (IFAS) personnel.
Theoperating costs are those costs that vary with output (yield) during
the production period. These costs vary depending on the price and quantity
of such inputs as fuel, oil, lubricants, repairs, fertilizers, seed, chemicals,
labor and numerous others.
Ownership costs, however, are unrelated to output and do not vary during
the production period. The ownership costs considered on assets used are
depreciation, insurance, taxes and interest.
Summing the operating and ownership costs results in the total cost
(does not include land and management) of producing the forage. The total
cost can help the producer evaluate the cost per unit of yield (pounds per

Summing the operating and ownership costs results in the total cost
(does not include land and management) of producing the forage. The total
cost can help the producer evaluate the cost per unit of yield (pounds per












acre) and estimate the forage production cost to be incurred in order to
supply the demands of the livestock enterprise.


Itemized Summary Budget


The itemized summary budget of field operations and cost per unit of
each asset used in the production system accompanies the production cost
budget for each forage. This budget identifies the operating inputs used,
month of application and rate per unit. Likewise, machinery requirements
are itemized according to the month of use and times over per acre. Other
useful information in this table includes a monthly summary of receipts and
expenses, annual capital, machinery labor requirements by month, machinery
fixed (ownership) and variable (operating) costs per hour, machinery fixed
(ownership) costs per acre and a summary of machinery size, cost, operating
speed, field efficiency, maintenance coefficients, annual use and life.
The wide variety of data available from this budget provides a producer
with an excellent information base upon which to make decisions. In addition,
manipulating these data can show the user the differences resulting from
changing some part of his production system.
The production inputs, rates and cultural practices described are
estimates of University of Florida research and extension personnel and grower
associated with forage production. Therefore, producers should consult other
local growers with experience and/or their county extension agent on recommen-
dations for their area. An annual soil test prior to the production of any
crop is highly recommended to determine the necessary nutrients and quantities
After the production inputs and practices have been identified, produc-
tion budgets may be more easily developed for planning and comparison. A word
of caution: Production costs comparisons for various forages should always
take into consideration both the yield and quality of the forage. Both of
these factors are of major importance in determining which forage produces
the lowest cost feedstuff.
The forage production budgets presented, provide the basic information
for estimating the impact on profits of certain decisions affecting the
agricultural operation. Following the procedure described.will enable an
individual producer to estimate and.examine his own production system. A

great deal of attention should be given to the development of a year-round
forage and livestock production system. The development of budget informa-
tion will not insure producers a profit, but it will improve their chances
of organizing an efficient and economical enterprise.
