One of my ag clients began benchmarking as a strategic tool a few years ago, focusing on key indicators that were both internal (comparing self to self over different time periods) and external (versus peers).

Little by little, performance improved, costs decreased and operations were streamlined. Pennies turned into dollars and, since the implementation of benchmarking, the client has improved profitability by two times.
