In January 2016, the owners of a family farm near London, Ontario, Canada, wanted to evaluate the financial status of their business. After 30 years in farming during a period that had seen dramatic changes in the agricultural industry, the couple was beginning to think about succession planning for the farm that had been passed down to them from previous generations. The couple wanted to evaluate how well they had managed the farm’s cash throughout fiscal 2015 and would use this analysis to help them determine the long-term stability of the farm's operation in preparation for this succession plan.
