Farm benchmarking is a process that analyses the productivity of the whole farm business and individual enterprises within the farm. The results and their financial consequences are compared to the results of other farms (ranked into average and top 20%). These standard benchmarks form the basis from which improvements to the business can be identified. Holmes Sackett Farm Benchmarking is a full cost allocation system allowing accurate profitability analysis and true measures of efficiency.
