A computer program designed to aid Nebraska cooperatives in making financial decisions will be released this month by University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension. The NebCAST program will enable directors and managers of any cooperative to assess the effects of their equity management decisions on the organization and its members in a manner consistent with the decision-making processes cooperatives typically follow. NebCAST, which stands for University of Nebraska–Lincoln Extension Cooperative Analytical Simulation Tool, was developed by Darrell R. Mark, Jeffrey S. Royer, and Rik R. Smith of the UNL Department of Agricultural Economics.
