Enterprise Budgeting and Partial Budgeting for Dog Breeders – CRONEY RESEARCH GROUP

Additional Resource
Whether you are new to the business or an established dog breeder thinking of making changes to your operation, a well-considered enterprise budget can provide insights. Enterprise budgets are a projection of all costs and returns for a single enterprise (Kay, Edwards, and Duffy, 2008) — for example, your dog breeding operation. Enterprise budgets can help you calculate potential profits and the break-even price, and can help you organize expenses. If you are considering adding to your operation (e.g., in order to meet certification requirements that garnish a price premium) enterprise budgets can help determine if the changes are profitable.
