Come and learn about developing a Farm Business Resilience Plan for your property, based on your natural resources, production, business goals and consideration of climate, environmental, biosecurity, market & financial risks.
This free workshop will provide information and resources on Queensland’s new drought reform measures, and how Farm Business Resilience Plans are a key requirement for accessing drought preparedness grants and drought ready & recovery assistance.
Attendees will be supported to undertake a self-assessment of their grazing & farming businesses against recognised industry practices to help identify key risks and plans & actions to improve resilience. As part of Queensland’s drought reform, Drought Preparedness Grants offer up to $50,000 as a co-contribution grant to assist primary producers undertake on-farm capital improvements that will improve the drought preparedness of their property.
To access these grants and other drought support measures including no and low interest loans, producers will need to have a Farm Business Resilience Plan. To assist landholders, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries Queensland, Healthy Land & Water, Rural Financial Counselling Service (Southern Qld) and Queensland Rural and Industry Development Authority invite you to a workshop to learn more about the new policy & programs, discuss management practices & support you to develop a Business Resilience Plan for your property.
