Have you got your game plan?
Whatever your goals are for your farm, family, or future, now there’s a simpler way to reach them.
Developed for Australian dairy farmers, ‘Our Farm, Our Plan’ is designed to help farmers identify their long-term goals, improve business performance and manage volatility. It helps farmers put their big ideas down on paper and get everyone in their business on the same page. It’s not just about planning for tomorrow, but planning for next month, next year and even the next decade.
‘Our Farm Our Plan’ is accessible on the Dairy Australia website with courses that allow farmers to work through the program with the guidance of an experienced consultant and includes one-on-one support to complete each stage of the program.
Through the ‘Our Farm, Our Plan’ process farmers will:
Use Farm Fitness Checklists to review their current position and identify opportunities to enhance their business
