Can You Write off a Cattle Feeder on Your Taxes?

As a farmer, you work hard to make a living —  and you’re always watching your bottom line. When you choose an investment, you do your research because you need that investment to pay you back.

That’s the reason Farmco cattle feeders are a good match for farmers — our feeders hold their value and they’re designed to save you money.

In fact, Farmco Cattle Feeders help you save money on your farm in more ways than one. First and foremost, Farmco feeders and livestock feeding equipment reduce the amount of feed your cattle waste, reducing how much you have to pay to feed them. That’s savings you’ll appreciate year after year. Furthermore, Farmco feeders make ground feeding of hay a thing of the past, which drastically reduces wasted hay. From creep feeding calves to finishing stock cattle, our feeder can help you get the job done.

Finally, if you purchase your Farmco feeder this year, chances are you can count it as a deduction on your Federal Income Taxes. This is just another way Farmco helps farmers save and another reason why December is a popular time to buy farm equipment.

If that equipment just so happens to save you money for the next few decades, you win twice.

Here are a few basic requirements you need to know in order to write off your cattle feeder on your federal income taxes.
