Roots to Resilience: Farmers

Unlock your business’s full potential by taking a step back from the day-to-day to focus on your future.

Farming is changing, and you want to know the best way to move your business forward  

In recognition of this, we have set up a new programme called Roots to Resilience. This starts with a three-day workshop on 13–15 December 2023 near Sutton Coldfield.

The workshop will incorporate the world-renowned Ranching for Profit course, to provide you with the necessary knowledge, tools and skills to identify your business aims and plan your future goals.

Key takeaways

  • Identify worry areas to address
  • Improve communication at home and in your business 
  • Establish clear goals and a shared vision for you, your family and your business  
  • Understand your farm accounts
  • Apply the three secrets for increasing profit to your farm
  • Develop a clear, implementable plan to help you achieve your goals

We understand that the reason for farming is different for everyone and is not always linked to how much profit you make. Importantly, the course will also incorporate the environmental and social aspects of farming systems. 

Dallas Mount

This three-day people- and business-focused workshop will be delivered by Dallas Mount, owner of Ranch Management Consultants, home of the world-renowned Ranching for Profit course. Dallas will bring to life his expertise and insight to support all areas of your farming needs.

Throughout the lifetime of Ranching for Profit, Dallas has worked with farmers across the USA, Canada and Australia to help them create profitable businesses, with healthy land and happy families. Dallas holds degree qualifications from Colorado State University and operates his own livestock ranch in Wyoming, USA.

To ensure you get the most from the course, it is essential that you commit to spending three full days away from your farm. See this time away as an investment in your future!
