New express finance course targets young farmers

Following on from Agriculture Victoria’s highly successful Young Farmer Business Bootcamps comes a new express financial literacy course for beginners.

With close to 400 young farmers having already improved their finance skills by doing a business bootcamp, it’s now time to encourage more to take up the opportunity with the ‘Farm Finance – Getting Prepared’ starter course.

“The new express course will be run as a series of five 90-minute webinars focussing on farm finance, risk and farm management planning,” Young Farmer Project Coordinator Sarah Wallis said.

“Perhaps you’ve stopped short of signing up to a full blown bootcamp thinking you don’t have the time to commit? Well these express ‘taster’ courses are exactly for you and they’ll definitely leave you wanting more,” she said.

The ‘Farm Finance – Getting Prepared’ webinar series breaks down every aspect of farm finance and runs from 7pm to 8.30pm on the following dates:

  • Thursday 25 March – The Business Case
  • Thursday 8 April – Creating the Cashflow budget
  • Thursday 29 April – Farm business risks
  • Thursday 13 May – Business Risks impact on cashflow
  • Thursday 27 May – Putting the plan into actions.

The sessions will be delivered by ORM Agribusiness Consultant Jane Foster, supported by Ms Wallis and participants will have opportunities to ask questions.

Participants can register via ZOOM:

The Farm Finance – Getting Prepared series is supported by Agriculture Victoria’s Smarter, Safer Farms program.
