Do you need to feed stock? A cash flow budget can help you to manage the increasing costs!
A user-friendly excel spreadsheet could provide an ideal tool for looking at contributing factors such as stock numbers, animal feed requirements and pasture growth.
We invite you to take part in an online meeting showcasing two excellent self-paced learning modules developed by Carmen Quade at AgriFocused. The modules will give you the skills required to set up your interactive spreadsheets. The webinar will focus on the development of a cash flow budget, a critical tool in weighing up any farm finance options that may be available to you.
