Livestock Enterprise Planning sessions

Livestock producers wanting to improve their business acumen and planning can now sign up to the Red Meat and Wool Program’s Livestock Enterprise Planning sessions.

The sessions provide an opportunity for producers to develop an actionable set of priorities to drive productivity gains and technology adoption.

You will have access to a one day session and one-on-one coaching where you will:

  • build business acumen and gain understanding of your key financial indicators including understanding balance sheets, profit and loss, cash flows and key bank ratios
  • gain understanding of strategies to increase profit in your business
  • learn from industry leaders about technologies that can help drive business efficiencies and profit, the benefits and pitfalls to be aware of, and how to match the tech to the needs of your business
  • examine your risks and develop strategies to increase business resilience
  • undertake a skills audit to identify any areas of improvement
  • develop a detailed action plan to guide your implementation
  • learn from others through the group learning approach
  • participate in one-on-one session with an experienced advisor to take these learnings and develop your Farm AgTech Adoption Plan.
