Getting livestock businesses back on track

Are you a grazier affected by the recent bushfires and seeking advice to help get your business back on track? 

Primary producers in fire-affected areas in North East Victoria can receive up to three, free one-on-one sessions with a local farm management consultant to help put their livestockbusinesses back on track. 

Through the Back to Business program funded by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA),sheep, cattle and goat producers in a fire affected postcode can apply for the Back to Business program. They will also need to show they have been affected by the fires. 

Producers can get support to assess their current situation, work through important issues and opportunities, and work out what actions to take first. 

Advice will be available for financial planning, property planning, nutrition (feeding programs), herd and flock rebuilding strategies, whole farm planning and animal health and welfare. 

If you think you are eligible:  

  • register with the Victorian program coordinator, Lyndon Kubeil from Agriculture Victoria, who will match you with a qualified and suitably experienced local farm consultant; 
  • identify your main topics for discussion; and, 
  • agree to meet with the consultant for three sessions. 

Contact Lyndon for the Back to Business program on mobile 0418 532 085 or emaillyndon.kubeil@agriculture.vic.gov.au
