Up and coming livestock producers ready to build their skills and confidence to manage a modern agricultural business can now access a new workshop supported by Meat & Livestock Australia.
The Business EDGE Young Guns workshop will launch in February at Dubbo, New South Wales, with workshops to follow at other locations in NSW, Queensland, Northern Territory, Western Australia and South Australia.
The two-day workshop is a new bespoke version of the highly successful Business EDGE workshop, which has equipped more than 700 producers with knowledge and skills to better understand the business side of their livestock operations.
MLA National Adoption Manager Genetics, Clara Bradford, said the Business EDGE Young Guns workshop is tailored specifically for up and coming producers to build financial literacy and business skills in collaboration with other young producers.
"Participants will learn the fundamentals of long-term wealth creation and equity building, and hear from a Young Gun keynote speaker at each event," Ms Bradford said.
"This comprehensive workshop is an opportunity to learn from presenters who understand grazing businesses, and meet other producers who are facing similar challenges, regardless of whether they are carrying on a family business, starting their own business, or stepping up in their roles.
"Participants receive a full set of course notes and a suite of decision support tools to use at home and apply the material to your business. Follow up is available to all participants."
