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.
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.
Our Farm, Our Plan will be delivered to dairy farmers in WA over two days. Running from midday to midday participants will stay overnight and have dinner together. Thanks to support from the Australian Government and the WA Government all costs are covered. Farmers can also participate online with groups being run nationally throughout the year.
