A new “Planning For Profit” initiative aimed at assisting farmers to ensure their businesses are well-placed to operate profitably in the face of reduced support payments, has been launched.

The initiative, supported by the Scottish Government’s Skills Development Scheme, Quality Meat Scotland (QMS) and NFU Scotland, will be rolled out Scotland-wide over the next 18 months.

The specific objectives of Planning for Profit include:- Focus on increasing output as a way to fill the profitability gap following CAP Reform- Provide information that enables farmers to consider making a step change – ‘big ideas’- Provide a framework for creating sustainable, profitable farm businesses- Show farmers how to ‘partial budget’ new or developed enterprises- Deliver a programme of farmer events to promote the concept and materials- The main outcome of the project is to enable farmers to generate an outline farm business plan for the future

A free lunch is included at the workshop.
