The SA Drought Support Program has identified that increasing farm business resilience and aiding recovery allows businesses to better prepare for and withstand future climatic and financial challenges, creating positive long-term outcomes.
The SA Farm Business Management Program is designed to support farm businesses in drought affected areas to increase business acumen and skills, while also building business resilience.
Participants will undertake a strategic review of their business and develop a business plan specific to their needs and situation. The business plan will address business risk management, identify opportunities for improvement and guide on-farm implementation. This will ensure a smooth transition from drought into recovery and back to business as usual, or better.
Starting 13 July, the 12-month program involves one-on-one coaching and group online sessions for drought affected producers across South Australia. Access to resources and online tools underpin the process, as do quarterly follow up sessions, allowing participants to move towards achieving goals within the business.
Online topics include strategic planning, benchmarking, creating and using budgets, practical steps for business resilience and drought recovery, managing risks on farm, making robust decisions and succession and management transition. All are key issues that when addressed, underpin successful farming businesses.
This program is open to all drought affected producers from grain, livestock or mixed businesses across South Australia.
Interested parties are encouraged to register as soon as possible due to limited spaces.
