LIVESTOCK production in Australia is still largely a family business, but having two or more generations working side-by-side, seven days a week isn’t always an easy or peaceful process.
Bringing new family members into the business can also call for some adjustments to be made. Having some tactics for talking and planning together can help meet these challenges.
These are just some of the topics to be touched on during an upcoming webinar. While the webinar coordinators, FutureBeef and Beef Central have developed the presentation with beef producers in mind, it’s content is equally applicable to lamb or wool producing enterprises across the country facing similar circumstances.
Guest presenter, Barbara Bishop, works with farming families to develop tactics for talking and planning together to help create a thriving business and family environment. Joining Barb Bishop will be the team from Pastoral Profit along with host Greg Bath, from FutureBeef.
In this webinar we’ll discuss:
- Family, farm and future – multi-generational businesses
- Building a multi-generation business: what does it look like?
- Chances, choices and change – how do I cope?
- It is a journey – how do we get everyone on board?
- A sneak peek – Charleville workshop.
