Young Farmer Business Bootcamps 2019
Agriculture Victoria is pleased to present the Young Farmer Business Bootcamps, an exciting two day program for young farmers or producers new to farming.
Delivered at various locations across Victoria, the Young Farmer Business Bootcamp will assist producers to understand and manage business risk, develop a business plan to grow their business and to have confidence that there is a future in agriculture for them.
The bootcamps are aimed at young producers such as beef, sheep and mixed farming businesses.
Young farmers are encouraged to attend with other business partners.
These fun and interactive workshops will utilise a series of farm case studies as real life examples, providing participants with the skills to help them manage their farm business now, as well as planning for their business into the future.
Participants will have ample opportunity to discuss individual circumstances with the presenters throughout the workshops.
The workshops will be delivered by Paul Blackshaw, Farm Business Advisor, Meridian Agriculture.
