NSW Young Farmer Business Program launches new podcast

Sheep Central, May 13, 2020

NEW South Wale’s Department of Primary Industries’ Young Farmer Business Program has launched a new podcast — The Business of Farming.

The podcast features a series of recordings from the inaugural Young Farmer Business Program (YFBP) Conference held in Dubbo in February this year.

The conference covered the drivers of successful primary production businesses, the support services available and practical steps for farm business success. The speakers included experts on finance, negotiation and planning, as well as successful people who were young entrants to the industry.

The conference focused on providing opportunities for the next generation of primary producers to develop the business skills, connections and knowledge they need to ensure their businesses thrive.

YFBP team leader, Alexandra Hicks, said the conference, which was attended by more than 300 delegates from across NSW, was a roaring success.

“The Business of Farming provides young farmers and fishers who couldn’t attend with the opportunity to access the knowledge and insights shared by the experts who spoke at the conference.

“It’s among the many innovative ways that our team is reaching young farmers and fishers, and helping them develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in business,” she said.

Conference speakers featured in the podcast include Mark Bouris of The Mentor, former Wallaby Stirling Mortlock and succession specialist Isobel Knight.

The Business of Farming is available now with all five episodes available to download for free via Google Podcasts, Apple Podcasts and Spotify.

The YFBP is an initiative of the NSW Department of Primary Industries. For more information, visit:
