Making your farm work for you
Do you want to set your farm up so you don’t have to milk? Maybe you want to pursue options off-farm, or a change of pace, or a better work/life balance, but you can’t choose the best solution. Whether it is taking on a farm manager or a contract milker, leasing the farm, or something else.
The Symes have evaluated their options and come up with an answer that works for them. We will find out what their KPIs are, how they developed structures so the farm runs smoothly in their absence, and how they work with their staff to achieve successful outcomes.
Growing your business
Nigel McWilliam, MBS Advisors, has a wealth of experience advising farmers throughout their dairy careers. He will talk about how you can develop innovative strategies to exit farming, or to grow your business so you can take that next step. He will also touch on the characteristics of profitable farmers, and share insights about the current banking environment and how it may affect your business.
Cropping – fitting the puzzle together
Ian Williams, Pioneer, will talk about how you can fit crops into your system, what to feed when, and how to prepare for, and grow, a first-class maize crop.
