Families Helped Through Drought

FARM.JPGFamilies from 30 farm businesses have been upskilled on finance and business to help them better prepare, manage and recover from drought in a new program run by Rural Business Support (RBS).

Farm Business Strategic Review Drought Management workshops were recently run in the Mid North and Eyre Peninsula, targeting mixed cropping and livestock families.

RBS is now conducting one-on-one farm visits to further assist those families who were involved in the recent workshops.

Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development Tim Whetstone said the workshops were an important tool in helping farmers improve financial management and better prepare for drought.
