Financials: Learn More

Are you financially savvy with the ability to make sound financial decisions?

The challenge of running a business is being able to make decisions which ultimately shape where you will end up. The more educated and informed your decision-making, the better.


Profitable farmers are often lifelong learners. Top farmers don't necessarily have formal qualifications but are farmers who value learning and attend conferences, short-courses, discussion groups and seminars.

  • If you are keen to improve your financial skills with the flexibility of learning at home, try the Career Pathways tool or Money Management Basics to help get you started.
  • Agriculture ITO, polytechnic institutes and universities offer agribusiness and farm management training that will help you to succeed in farming. For more information on training providers click here.
  • Interested in workshops or discussion groups that aim to improve your financial skills and understanding? The following DairyNZ initiatives may help:
  • Take advantage of the rural professionals who support your business: i.e. rural bankers, farm consultants, accountants, veterinarians and company representatives (e.g. fertiliser reps). Having a good team around you providing you with information about the current farming situation is invaluable for your business.
