We have run this course before and attendees were very positive about the changes they were able to make as a result of using ideas from the sessions.

 

“This course cut straight to the nuts and bolts of understanding and controlling our business. Lots of very useful business planning tools that we regularly use.”- Chris and Rachel Knowles, Trink Dairy, Cornwall.

 

It is essential you commit to attending BOTH days and bring your latest set of annual accounts (not to share with others but to use during the course for ACTUAL data for your business) and a note of your annual saleable milk volume in litres.
