Project Information

Summary:

Note to readers, attached is the complete final report for FNE96-145

Mr. McChesney, together with Andy DuFresne of Cornell Cooperative Extension, recruited a number of farmers to try out some record-keeping and financial management software that Mr. DuFresne had already written for CCE. The participants were shown how to install and use the software, and their suggestions were used to improve the program, and make it more suitable for on-farm use. The program is called “CropEc,” and it may be downloaded, for a fee, from the CCE Chautauqua County website, located at: http://www.cce.cornell.edu/chautauqua

Two other programs came out of this project as well, though not in the original plan. One, called “MnureRec,” deals with the management of manure, and the other, “MilkFeed Ec,” deals with the management of feed for cattle, and milk output, and calculates profitability or loss. These programs are also available at the CCE Chautauqua County website.
