|Protein Sources, LLP (Protein Sources) provides production and financial management services for farrowing and grow-finish swine operations in the upper Midwest, principally Minnesota and Iowa. We tailor our services to each client’s particular needs, from complete farm management to unbundled consulting services including swine production, financial management, facility and site management, swine herd health services, risk management (lean hogs and feed inputs) and animal radio frequency identification (RFID) & traceability.
Protein Sources has extensive swine production experience. Many pork production management companies have individuals in charge who possess little on-farm swine production experience or lack specific experience with the large, complex swine operations prevalent today. The fact that our partners and managers have been actively involved in swine production throughout their lives has been a key success factor for Protein Sources and more importantly, for our clients.
Another key success factor for Protein Sources is its focus on accurate, timely and meaningful financial information, utilizing generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) basis and historical cost financial statements. Many veterinary clinics and other management firms typically manage pork production systems utilizing so-called “production” information systems with substantially less emphasis on the financial aspects affecting key business decisions. We not only provide financial statements in accordance with GAAP, but we also provide recommendations for capital budgeting decisions, financing/company capitalization structure, detailed financial analyses of operations and recommendations for profit improvement, including more effective use of human resources assets. Protein Sources partners, employees and client employees undergo valuable, continued training and education opportunities to not only better their own careers, but to improve the companies they serve.
