Get subsidised access to leading advisers who will deliver both on-farm support and group workshop learning to prepare you and your business to bounce back in the face of adverse climate and other challenges through the new AgRi-Silience program, a joint project between Livestock SA and Grain Producers SA.

The program will help you and your staff:

  • Improve your financial literacy and, in the process, learn new ways to build the financial viability of your business.
  • Become more confident in decision-making by conducting risk assessments.
  • Learn new skills and techniques to build your own personal resilience, helping you to concentrate on the business at hand rather than dwell on negatives.
  • Become high-performing contributors regarding decision making and operations.

Participants will finish the program with a Resilience Roadmap, which will help you build resilience and boost productivity, profitability and sustainability over the long-term.

The training will be individually tailored to your business to ensure you get maximum value from the program.

Local facilitators will deliver facilitated learning, expert guidance and coaching, along with the support of subject matter experts with specialist skills in strategic farm business management and planning, farm risk management and decision making, natural resource management and personal and social resilience.

You will get one-on-one support from subject matter experts to help boost your business’ resilience.

Each participating business is required to contribute $500 (ex. GST) and, where there is a genuine need, may be able to access reimbursement for travel and childcare costs from PIRSA.

To maximise the benefits of the program, it is recommended two members of a farm business attend the training. Additional participants are welcome, subject to demand, and will need to pay for the full cost of the program.

This project is part of the Farm Business Resilience Program and is jointly funded through the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund and the Government of South Australia.



AgriSilience Webinar 1 - Business Management and Natural Resource Management

The only constant in life is change, and in agriculture we have always been well adapted to change. Changes in season, changes in commodity price ... But it seems that the need to adapt to change is becoming more necessary. There is a significant push for industry to ensure it has the ability and skills to adapt to change and be sustainable in the long term.

Join Livestock SA as we talk to some industry leaders when it comes to change. They have seen firsthand what happens to farming people and businesses if they are not equipped to respond to changing environments. Find out more about lessons our experts have learned over the years and hear about how you can help to improve the resilience in you and your business.

In this webinar, you'll hear from Pinion Advisory's Carlyn Sherriff and Innovative Influences' Jeanette Gellard who will discuss business management and natural resource management.
