Something's New

Welcome to the new FINBIN website. We hope you like the new look and feel of the site. We have made lots of changes in the background but the basic functionality of the site is unchanged: to provide the most powerful farm financial benchmarking tool possible with the most diverse set of peer group farms from a broad range of farms by farm type, size and location. The major change you will notice is that FINBIN will now work much better on your mobile devices. No more scrolling and fumbling to try to navigate the website. FINBIN will now format to the device you are using.

We hope you like the changes. Let us know what you think.

2015 Financials Keep Rolling In!

Data from 977 North Dakota, Nebraska, Missouri, Illinois, Michigan, South Dakota and Utah farms has now been added to FINBIN. With the Minnesota data, that brings the total 2015 database to 3283 farms. You can use FINBIN's summary reports to see the financial results for each state or for all farms by type or size of farm. Or run a benchmark report to compare your farm to a group of farms similar to yours.

We expect data from several other states will be in the BIN in the next month or so.
