Is your farm exposed to business risk? - Devon

When: June 20th 2017 11:00 to 14:30
Location: EX36 3LH

Help your business get in shape with our fully funded workshopsDEFRA

What’s your plan for managing risk? Farming is an inherently risky business and sadly there is no simple solution to deal with every risk.

Whether it’s feed and milk price volatility, disease risk, a change in political policy, the weather or family ups and downs, all these risks can have a massive impact on the business. No element can be fully controlled but identifying threats to your business and having a plan in place to deal with them can give you greater business resilience.   

AHDB Dairy (along with AHDB Beef & Lamb and AHDB Pork) are running workshops as part of a Defra initiative funded under the EU Adjustment Aid Scheme, to help you identify, understand and focus on risk areas in your business.

At this workshop you will be able to sign up for fully funded on-farm advisor support for your business. The programme has been designed to build and put into action a plan for managing risks to your business.

The workshop will cover:

  • How to access 1:1 fully funded on-farm advisor support
    • Understanding the five pillars of managing risk
    • Why having goals and objectives are critical and how to go about setting yours
    • Identifying areas of your business to focus on

Who should attend? Livestock farmers and managers who are responsible for long term planning of their business and who want to identify and manage risk in their business.
