Agricultural Producers

Many livestock and grain producers prefer fair market value, or the farm-price method, for valuing inventory due to the volatility of commodity prices. But several options exist for valuing livestock inventory. It can be difficult to decide which method is right for your operation and how hedging program accounting can affect inventory market value.
