Farming for profit

farming for profit

B+LNZ's farming for profit programme is focused on what your community wants. It uses field days, seminars and workshops to address the issues that are most important to you and your neighbours.

How the farming for profit programme works

B+LNZ will develop a programme of activities around issues farmers identify as being critical in their region.

These may not always be on-farm projects, but they will always be linked to a section of the sheep and beef sector value chain.

Farming for profit programmes will share information and monitor the progress of a whole community rather than an individual farm.

The benefits

This programme will enable us to work harder on behalf of your community. It’s all about coming up with local solutions for local needs, so you have the practical tools you need to help you improve your farm business.
