Diversifying – finding opportunities for you
Do you want to build the capital to progress, step out of the milking shed, bring family members on board, or just make more money out of your farm asset? This seminar will investigate the process of developing innovative ideas and analysing their feasibility.
While dairying is the primary business of Graham Smith, entrepreneurial farmer, SMASH blogger, and Country Calendar star, he is always on the hunt for other ways to make a living from his 37 ha Waikato farm. So far he has added farm forestry, duck eggs and tourism to the mix. He will get you thinking outside the square and take you through his journey, highlighting the pitfalls and rewards.
Rabobank have years of experience helping farmers reach their goals. They will facilitate an interactive and practical session exploring the nuts and bolts of making changes to your business.
