This paper examines alternative risk management strategies in terms of their effectiveness for three representative Alberta farm operations. Stochastic dynamic simulation methods are used to model financial performance for these farms, and alternative risk management programs are compared in...
A farmer planning to use Net Present Value (NPV) analysis on machinery requires estimates of operating benefits over time, an estimate of terminal or salvage values and a risk-adjusted discount rate. Using financial market information and related Root Mean Square Errors on machinery value...
The focus of this study is to examine the risk and return trade-offs for various crop rotations and tillage systems. The geographic area represented in this study will be that contained within four soil, and five climatic zones within the Province of Alberta. The predominant crops grown in these...
In this paper, we examine risk reductions possible by including off-farm assets with farm assets in a form growth context. We specify a dynamic investment model in which an individual can invest in hog finishing barns, stocks, and financial holdings. We solve this model for an Alberta hog...
Secondary asset market data for combines and tractors used to estimate and separate out historical economic depreciation, embodied technological change and time value change. Combines and tractors generally exhibit constant geometric economic depreciation on a year to year basis. Depreciation...
The objective of this study was to analyze the performance of Alberta farmland relative to investment opportunities from financial securities. It is an extension of an earlier study undertaken by Mercier (1988) and Philllips et al. (1989). This study re-examines the period from 1964 to 1985, and...
The Canadian beef industry has stated objectives of improving beef quality and consumer satisfaction while reducing unit costs of production. Suggested methods for achieving these goals include working towards value based marketing and improved information flows between different market levels...

Financial principles of project investment analysis with the cost and benefit flows over time. Invariably, the correct future cash flows and exact risks are unknown. The agricultural academic literature devotes substantial energy to discussing the estimation of the cash flows but it is relatively...
