Better Farm Accounting has been an agricultural institution since its initial publication in 1946. This inexpensive, easy-to-use book has served as a practical aid to agricultural producers for generations. The new edition will include updated headings for income and expenses and information will be reorganized to make this edition even more user-friendly. In addition, new separate sections devoted to purchases and sales of capital assets, loans, and loan payments will also be added. The 5th edition of this venerable classic will ensure its practical use for generations to come.
