The one-week course aims to help you find the breakthroughs that will increase your profitability, improve the health and productivity of your farming operation, and improve your quality of life. The school is designed for all types of pasture-based livestock farming (beef, sheep, dairy, etc.), and is appropriate for all regions and farm sizes.

This opportunity is meant for farmers serious about investing in their businesses.
