Research and Development Tax Incentives for the Cattle Industry

Many agricultural businesses are unaware that the government offers generous research and development (R&D) incentive programs, or they may believe that such programs do not apply to agricultural companies. Even those that are aware often fail to capture the full extent of R&D tax credits to which they are entitled. If you think you have to have a PhD and a laboratory to be conducting qualified activities as defined by the Internal Revenue Code, think again.

Has your operation produced new or improved products recently? Have you modified product formulations and/or production processes or made other improvements to the efficiency of your operation? If the answer is yes, then there is a strong chance that your agricultural company could benefit from an R&D tax credit study. Let alliantgroup’s agriculture experts help you claim the credits that you deserve.

Examples of Aerospace Innovations Eligible for R&D Tax Incentives Include the Following:

  • Evaluation of alternative feedstuffs
  • Changes to growth-promoting implants regiments
  • Improvements to health protocols
  • Evaluation of new genetic lines
  • Improvements to animal husbandry techniques
