Project to Focus on Profit and Performance
Fitzroy Basin Association Inc (FBA) has called for Expressions of Interest from graziers in the Fitzroy Basin seeking to improve profitability and performance. Support to the value of $35,000 per business is on offer for training and customised professional development opportunities.
The project will focus on profit and performance in grazing businesses and at the same time is designed to achieve positive water quality outcomes. By increasing graziers’ knowledge and skills, the project will improve productivity, profitability and have a positive environmental impact.
Over the next three years, each region will work closely with 10 graziers to identify areas where improvements can be made.
Through a partnership, the need for support, training and development to improve the business’ profitability, productivity and water quality outcomes will be identified. Through this process, areas for improvement will be identified and showcased at workshops and field days across the region, contributing to the knowledge of over 500 graziers.
The program is coordinated by FBA, through funding from the Reef Trust and will have positive flow-on effects for local water quality. The Reef Trust is being delivered by the Australian Government, in collaboration with the Queensland Government, and the Great Barrier Reef Marine Park Authority.
