Our Farm, Our Plan

Our Farm, Our Plan helps farmers identify long term goals, improve business performance and manage volatility. It was developed by Dairy Australia, with support from Gardiner Dairy Foundation and DairyNZ.

Designed for Australian dairy farmers, Our Farm, Our Plan helps put their big ideas down on paper and get everyone on the farm on the same page. Using a simple ‘Now, Where, How, Review’ planning process and providing one-on-one support for farmers over two years, it assists with putting their plan in place and into action.

Workshops and support

Below are the key resources which can be used to get started on the Our Farm, Our Plan program. Dairy farmers can get started by taking a self-assessment using the online Farm Fitness Checklist.

Farm Fitness Checklist

The Farm Fitness Checklist is a ‘self-assessment’ tool for farmers to measure where they are at now and to identify opportunities for improvement. Each section of the checklist will prompt thinking and discussion about different aspects of the farm business.

Take the plan further by downloading the resources below. Dairy farmers can plan their future in three easy steps with the QuickPlan and commit and share with others the Plan on a Page. A free Our Farm, Our Plan folder can also be ordered online free of charge containing all four documents.
