Our Farm, Our Plan

Our Farm, Our Plan is a new program developed by Dairy Australia with support from the Gardiner Dairy Foundation and DairyNZ to equip farmers to clarify their long term goals, prioritise and identify actions needed, and to better manage uncertainty and risk. Contact us on 1800 548 073.

Our Farm, Our Plan is a comprehensive program that helps dairy farmers take the guess work out of farm business planning.

Below are the key documents which can be downloaded to get started on the Our Farm, Our Plan program. Dairy farmers can take a self-assessment using the Farm Fitness Checklist, plan it out in three easy steps with the QuickPlan and commit and share with others the Plan on a Page. The Our Farm, Our Plan folder can also be ordered online free of charge containing the above documents.

Farm Fitness Checklist

The Farm Fitness Checklist is a ‘self-assessment’ tool to measure for farmers to measure where they are at now and to identify opportunities for improvement. Each section of the checklist will prompt thinking and discussion about different aspects of the farm business.

QuickPlan keeps it simple

The QuickPlan uses a three-step process to take the ideas and plans in farmers' heads and develop a clear understanding of long term business and personal goals. It can be used by anyone and is used in Our Farm, Our Plan workshops, which are ideal for discussion groups.

Workshops and support

Group workshops are being delivered by our regional teams to take farmers through the Our Farm, Our Plan process. Follow up one-on-one support is provided over 24 months to participants. These workshops are ideal for discussion groups.
