Our Farm, Our Plan is a new program developed by Dairy Australia with support from the Gardiner Dairy Foundation. It is designed to equip farmers to clarify their long term goals, prioritise and identify actions needed, and to better manage uncertainty and risk. This program is designed for dairy farm business owners and/or managers. Please consider this when registering.
Having a clear view of long term business and personal goals helps to make better decisions, especially the big decisions. Our Farm, Our Plan keeps it simple and takes long term plans and ideas from dairy farmers' heads and gets them down on one page. The Plan on a Page requires agreement, is able to be shared and enables farmers to track their progress over time.
The program is delivered over two day sessions (9am 1pm Thursday 2nd June and 1:30pm - 5:30pm Friday 3rd June) plus 2 X 1:1 sessions with a trained Dairy Business consultant/facilitator. It helps to give you structure around where you are heading and what to focus first on to get there!
Farmers consistently say how much they enjoy the benefits of being involved in an National Online "Our Farm, Our Plan" program, like not having to leave the farm, meeting other farmers from across Australia they would never had the opportunity to as well as having both the group discussions and smaller one to one session.
