Preparing today’s farmer for tomorrow’s disruption.

Nurturing growth every step of the way

Today’s business issues are challenging farmers to adapt—sometimes unexpectedly. Global competition, amplified weather events, government regulation, trade agreements, and changing operating margins all play a role. For some Canadian livestock farms, the quota system significantly affects gross margins, cash flow, and how farmers invest for the future.

New technology and data-driven decision-making are helping the livestock industry do more with less. Increased productivity, better feed conversion, improved animal health and facilities, and decreasing environmental impacts pave the way for a better future, especially when layered with financial knowledge.

Our deep-shared agricultural knowledge means BDO can provide all our livestock clients with specialized information and services, such as accounting, tax planning and structuring, incorporation guidance, and our industry-leading benchmarking and succession planning.
