Property planning to improve productivity
The Hunter-Central Rivers Catchment Management Authority (CMA) is inviting rural landholders in the Tuggerah Lakes catchment to a two day course on property planning.
This two day whole farm planning course will give participants practical training in the use of FarmKeeper software to develop a whole farm plan of their property. This course has been funded by the Australian Government’s Caring for our Country.
The CMA’s Tuggerah Lakes Project Officer Carolyn Jenkinson said the course will help landholders map their farm, existing natural resources, plan projects and print and export their property plan.
‘Landholders will have the opportunity to take advantage of specialist advisers to begin developing their own farm plan,’ explained Ms Jenkinson. ‘They will learn where to locate the fences, tracks and watering points to improve production on their property whilst minimising any impacts on the environment.’
The course will help participants decide the best ways to achieve their goals for their property.
Consultant and farm planning expert Nick Bullock will be presenting the course. Nick has been working with landholders for many years to help farmers develop plans for their individual properties.
A property plan will also help landholders apply for CMA funding programs, as a detailed property plan will identify where works are required to improve farm productivity and sustainable natural resource management.
The course will be held over two days on Monday 18th and Tuesday 19th June from 9am-4pm at Ourimbah. Registrations are essential.
