About this event

Does your grazing business have a written business plan?

Hear from Rural Financial Counselling Service, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries, and Southern Gulf NRM on the new Drought Assistance Package.

Business planning and farm planning are vital ingredients and drivers of farm business profitability and sustainability.

What is a business plan?

A business plan is a document that details how you will handle all the important aspects of your business. It sometimes combines several other plans that can often stand alone such as a financial plan, grazing plan, drought or disaster management plan or even your succession plan. It can also include a list of your assets, an analysis of your business risks, your property map and details about the roles and experience of people involved in your enterprise.


Why do I need one?

A written plan is effectively a blueprint that sets out your vision, your current state and how to plan to reach your goals. It clearly communicates your aims, in writing, to your business partners, successors, accountants, both commercial and concessional (government) lenders, and others.

It’s important to get this information out of one’s head and onto a page.

A business plan can also be used for:

  • borrowing money to purchase a new property
  • applying for the new Queensland Drought Assistance Program
