Take the next step – benchmarking project for sheep & cropping operations

Red Meat_header_plain

MLA benchmarking project for Tassie sheep & cropping businesses

Producers who run businesses with sheep and cropping currently have an opportunity to get involved in a benchmarking project, which aims to identify what it takes to successfully integrate cropping and livestock enterprises in southern Australia. The project is being delivered in Tasmania by Macquarie Franklin, and is funded by Meat and Livestock Australia.

Participating businesses will be asked to contribute enterprise management and financial data which can be analysed to identify the key profit drivers in mixed farming enterprises. They will receive detailed benchmarking reports and have an opportunity to dig deeper into what it all means as a group workshop. If you’ve been thinking about getting into benchmarking this is a great opportunity to test the water and see if it’s for you.

Applications close on Friday 31 March, and places will be filled on a first in basis so get in early.
