Spreadsheet Tutorial

1After weve realized the improvements in conception, farrowing and litter-size, how can we evaluate the financial impact of these improvements?

Moreover, how can we justify the high cost of using AbsoluteTM technology? Is it truly worth it?

The question is not can we afford to use Absolute? rather, can you afford NOT to use it?

ASIC has put together a spreadsheet that will help determine the financial equivalent of these improvements.

This section will guide you through the whole process of using the Profit Spreadsheet.2

When you open our Profit Spreadsheet, it will be blank except for our default inputs of 1 minute per ASIC insemination's, 1 employee needed, and 2 inseminations per animal. These can be changed any time if you like...Click Picture to Open Spreadsheet

3Your first step should be to fill in the top section and enter your farms current information; number of animals, average farrowing %, live born, profit per animal sold, etc. Note: Use your local currency All currencies work as long as they are not intermixed.

4Now, please add your current fixed costs such as pipette cost, daily feed & housing per animal, and cost per dose of semen.

8SUMMARY FOR THIS SECTION

Do you now better understand what our technology is all about?

Its not about changing your breeding system (which sometimes we need to modify a little), it is more about putting profits in your pocket at the end of the year.

Very small improvements in farrowing and live born numbers equate to enormous profits that you can use however you like! New truck, upgrading facilities, childrens education and the like. It is YOUR money! Press X under sign out to go the Main Menu.
