The FBSR uses proven tools and on-farm support to assist farming families to consider fundamental questions around where their business is at, clarify where it is going and commit with confidence to where the family ideally wants it to be. The fundamental questions of “Where are we? Where are we going? How do we get there? How much will it cost? Will the bank support us? Who will help us?” are addressed through strategic briefing sessions, followed by on-farm support, with the program assisting each family business to develop a Strategic Action Plan.
Since its inception, pilot versions of the program have been successfully delivered to farming families in the dairy, pork, grains and livestock sectors, including in drought-affected regions, with the backing of PIRSA and industry bodies.
The program assists with identifying improvements in productivity, profitability and people. It also provides a clearer understanding of what banks think of each business and supports effective negotiation with banks and advisors. One of the key outcomes is the preparation of a bank review to assist with securing the necessary financial and consulting support to implement strategic action plans.
