Succession Planning Without a Successor - business insight

Navigating succession can be difficult and even more so if you do not have anyone to take over the business. When it comes to farmers without an immediate successor, few options exist - the farm can be sold, let as a farm or letting land on cropping or grazing licences. However, many producers still want to play an active part in the farm whilst taking a step back. So, what options are there?


This dairy insight publication explores the options and how it may work for you and your business.


Motivating and Rewarding Staff - business insight

Labour is often one of the biggest sources of complaint on dairy farms. However, having a motivated team that works hard to achieve high levels of business performance ultimately comes down to making them feel valued and empowered. That means listening to their individual motivators, investing in their skills and creating a positive working environment. Do that, and people will work hard and stay working for you. It will also set you apart as a good employer and attract the right people in the future.

This dairy insight looks at the opportunities to empower and motivate staff on your farm and explores different ways to reward good performance.
