The aim of this programme is to review and analyse current and past economic performance data for grazing enterprises in Western Queensland. The data gathered will then be used as a basis for ongoing monitoring and applied in extension and research programmes. Specific aims are to: (a) Derive whole property profitability indicators such as generation of cash surplus, equity levels, return on capital, return on labour and gross margins. (b) Compare results: Between 'different size holdings within and without the different regions surveyed. Between individual businesses and the district average. (c) Analyse variability of whole property performance indicators over time. (d) Calculate stocking rates and changes in these over time. (e) Form a basis for assessing the effect of stocking rates of profitability. (f) Determine minimum viable holdings for different resource regions and their relationship to debt levels. (g) Assess grazier perceptions in relation to issues such as long term viability and life aspirations.
