The Ostrich Farm Financial Accounting

Basic Information commercial ostrich industry began about 150 years ago in South Africa especially good for their meat eggs are edible but they are mainly used for breeding and art purposes one pair of mature ostrich is worth about 8 ostrich eggs one adult ostrich yields around 100 kg of meat 100 kg meat is worth about 9 eggs One adult ostrich consumes about 35 kg of feed per day Financial Accounting

Beginning-1 father divided his ostrich farm of 30 squared kilometers that is worth ninety ostrich eggs between his two daughters total of thirty ostriches the daughters did not own the land or the ostriches but were responsible from running the operations older daughter received a land of 20 squared kilometers with 20 ostriches, and the younger the remaining land with its ostriches Financial Accounting

Beginning-2 In each piece of land there is one egg incubator that is expected to last eight years with good use, and a portable shelter for the animals which can usually be used for two years. Each egg incubator is worth two pairs of ostriches and the shelter about two eggs. The father also gave each daughter bird feed that would be enough for the first half of the year kg of feed is worth one egg. Financial Accounting

Decision Which daughter is doing better? Criteria?
Financial Accounting

What do we need to answer?
“performance” ownership common denominator or measurement unit Financial Accounting

Solution Common denominator – eggs or birds? Father or daughters?
Wealth increase? How to measure? Financial Accounting

Measurement Unit -Eggs
Financial Accounting

Older Sister Capital –whose? Financial Accounting

During the year- Older slaughtered 9 ostriches at midyear (assume one year is 360 days) and exchanged the meat for another portable shelter and bird feed The hens laid a total of 300 eggs of which 2 were broken She gave 45 eggs to her helpers and 3 eggs to the veterinarian the egg incubator broke down and she promised to give the fixer 2 eggs during the next season Her father took 25 eggs Financial Accounting

End of the year- Older At the end of the year, she received 25 pairs of ostriches of a different breed in exchange for 9 eggs a pair. These ostriches are expected to be ready for processing when they are 18 months old, at almost half the age of the other breed. Financial Accounting

During the year: Older *126 eggs plus 69.3 eggs Financial Accounting

End of the year Older Financial Accounting

Younger sister Capital –whose? Financial Accounting

During the year- Younger
hatched 10 eggs and exchanged the chicks for 20,000 kg of feed and one small used incubator that is worth 5 eggs and that could be used for 5 more years at the beginning of the year slaughtered 1ostrich mid-year and exchanged for bird feed hens laid 277 eggs during the year. She used 45 eggs to purchase more bird feed, gave 25 eggs to the helpers, 2 eggs to the veterinarian, and 50 eggs to her father Her portable shelter became unusable due to a very active animal. She got a new shelter, and gave one egg and promised to give one more egg next season Her portable shelter became unusable due to a very active animal. She got a new shelter, and gave one egg and promised to give one more egg next season. Financial Accounting

End of the year-Younger
At the end of the year, she exchanged her remaining eggs for 18 pairs of ostriches of the same breed as hers Financial Accounting

Comparison- Beginning of the year:
total egs Older Younger ostrich land incubator feed shelter Financial Accounting

Comparison – End of the year
total eggs older younger ostrich feed land Incubator Shelter Owes: 2 eggs egg Financial Accounting

Which one is doing better?
What about the eggs given to the father? Which daughter is using the resources more efficiently? Who has increased the wealth more? Financial Accounting

Wealth Older Beginning 284 eggs End 356.7 eggs (owe 2 eggs)
Younger Beginning 151 eggs End eggs (owe 1 egg) How much is the net worth or capital or owners’ equity? Financial Accounting

Increase in wealth Difference between the beginning and the ending capital Older: 72.7 Younger 98.3 Now let’s see what caused the capital increase…. Financial Accounting

Older –Annual Performance
meat produced eggs total revenue eggs cost ostrich x feed Cost gross margin help 45 vet 3 broke 2 fix 2 total expenses income gave to father Increase eggs Financial Accounting

Younger-Annual Performance
shelter eggs hatched eggs meat eggs total revenue 311 ostrich feed hatched eggs Cost gross margin help 25 vet 2 shelter unusable 2 total expenses income gave to father 50 Increase Financial Accounting

Moral of the Story We need a common measurement – money
Period is important – a year from now older might be better Entity is different than the owner Each financial statement answer a different question Balance sheet: how resources are allocated Income Statement : how efficiently the resources are used. Financial Accounting
