Dairy Australia in conjunction with Murray Dairy and the Alpine Valleys Dairy Pathways Project provided funding for Getting Started with Succession Planning project.  In partnership with Bridge Logic Consulting AgBiz Assist jointly delivered the initial stage of the project. 

The Getting Started with Succession Planning project:

  • Researched best practice in succession planning by surveying every dairy farmers in the Alpine Valleys Dairy Pathways Project catchment
  • Contacted every dairy farmer who expressed an interest in receiving assistance with succession planning
  • Selected ten farms to pilot the Getting Started with Succession Planning Tool
  • Evaluated the results and reported back to the dairy community.

AgBiz Assist provided support and encouragement to help participants to determine exactly where they were at the beginning of the project, document who is involved in making decisions and plan for changes in the future. Knowledge gained empowered participants to plan, and manage change better. Project participants with assistance from AgBiz Assist consultants looked at:

  • Are you viable?
  • Who are the decision makers?
  • Are you able to scale up?
  • How to create a succession plan
  • How to manage change better.

If you are not a dairy farmer in the Alpine Valleys Dairy area or from another agricultural industry and would like to find out more about succession planning please contact us.
