• Crop and Livestock Farming

Customized advice for every farmer

The business issues faced by farmers are challenging them to adapt. Global competition, government regulation, declining operating margins: they all play a role in the current crop of threats. Adding to the challenge is the next generation of business exits by farm owners. Today’s farmers need timely and accurate information to make informed decisions on a range of business issues, from farm succession and transition planning to risk management.

BDO professionals help farmers make the right decisions for their businesses with an integrated suite of services that focus on farmers’ needs across the board — from crops to livestock. We offer farm accounting, tax planning, and bookkeeping services, which provide advice and benchmarking tools to increase profitability. Our family farm succession planning supports a smooth transition to the next generation that avoids family farm disputes. We also help clients navigate government programs — such as the Canadian Agricultural Partnership, AgriStability, and AgriInvest — so they can mitigate risk and capitalize on emerging market opportunities.
