Carrying out an e-Profit Monitor (ePM) for 2016 should be a current priority for drystock farmers. After all, your farm is a business and every business is built on financial performance. The first step involved is to download and print the Teagasc drystock profit monitor input sheet. This input sheet can be found online when you search “e-profit monitor input sheet” and it breaks down the required information into various sections. Alternatively, if completing yourself, log in to ICBF Herdplus, select “applications” and then “profit monitor” – although it is paramount that you know exactly what you’re doing if attempting your own profit monitor on Herdplus.
