Agriculture Victoria will offer the two-day bootcamp sessions at Swan Hill over 9 and 10 February, and in Maryborough over 16 and 23 February.

Participants will be taken through profit, loss and cash flow budgeting, balance sheets and gross margins, risk management, and financial planning and analysis.

Agriculture Victoria Young Farmer Project Coordinator Sarah Wallis said the bootcamp will help farmers to develop skills to understand and manage business risk, develop a business plan to grow their business and connect with other young farmers from their region.

These bootcamps are targeting young farmers impacted by flood and storm events, as part of Agriculture Victoria’s technical and decision-making support program. The workshops will help to grow the resilience of young farm businesses and prepare them for the future.

“These fun and interactive bootcamps use a series of farm case studies as real-life examples, providing participants with the skills to help them manage their farm business now, as well as planning for their business into the future,” Ms Wallis said.

“This is also an opportunity for young and emerging farmers to connect with like-minded and motivated people.”

The bootcamps will be delivered by Paul Blackshaw, Farm Business Advisor with Meridian Agriculture.
