John D. Lawrence, PhD
PDF version is available online.
Objective: To describe a method to evaluate both the profitability and feasibility of potential investments in a pork-raising enterprise.
Design and procedure: Formulas are given to allow an economic analysis addressing both the feasibility and profitability of a project. Data from a hypothetical farm considering whether to adopt and all-in-all-out and a segregated early weaning scheme are used as examples to illustrate the formulas.
Implications: When considering whether to adopt a new technology, it is important to first calculate both the profitability and feasibility of the investment.
Keywords: economic analysis, profitability, feasibility
