This sophisticated spreadsheet tool uses the economics from five years of broiler production as outlined in PNW 665, Break-even Analysis of Small-Scale Production of Pastured Organic Poultry, as the starting point for estimating annual returns for standard and slow Cornish Cross broiler production. Users can adjust costs and quantities for both the operating and ownership costs, such as chicken tractors, in order to estimate their breakeven costs of production.
