The AgriBusiness Group is very involved in the Red Meat Profit Partnership – Action Groups, seeing the value the initiative adds to individual farm businesses and the red meat sector as a whole, improving performance, efficiency and upskilling the sector.
Getting involved with forming and facilitating action groups fits well with our vision of ‘Achieving Outcomes by Building Capability’, giving farmers access to the tools, resources and information to build their confidence and business performance to reach the goals they have set for themselves.
We have a number of groups across the Canterbury region where each of the farmer members all have a common goal, whether it be to improve on farm livestock production, introduce a new system through the addition of irrigation or gain a better understanding of outside influences on their farm business. Through the whole process we ensure the farmer group members are the ones who are driving the information they want when they want it. We build activities to suit the group focus from small workshops to on farm field days. Monitoring and evaluation play a role in ensuring the delivery of our work is effective and is beneficial to each of the individual members of the groups.
Being a part of these groups also ensures that we are keeping up to speed with what the industry is looking for and moving towards, with motivated farmers pushing their boundaries and asking the curly questions.
The Red Meat Profit Partnership Action Network is a nationwide industry led programme to increase sector productivity and profitability.
