Agriculture Victoria is offering young farmers and those new to farming the opportunity to take part in one of a series of Young Farmer Business Bootcamps, to be held in Myrtleford, Mansfield and Tallangatta this autumn.
The free two-day business bootcamps will help farmers identify and manage business risk and develop a business plan to grow their business and confidence in a future in agriculture.
These fun and interactive business bootcamps use a series of farm case studies as real-life examples, providing participants with the skills to help them manage their farm business now, as well as planning for their business into the future.
The business bootcamps are also an opportunity for young and emerging farm managers to connect with like-minded and motivated people.
Over the two-day business bootcamp participants will develop:
- cash flow budgeting skills
- strong understanding of risk management and planning
- capacity to fine tune their business goals.
