We haven't seen a resource like this before. Although it is over 10 years old, it is still pertinent and useful today. It may help to provide clear action points to feel more in control of your farm.

Farmers are under as much, if not more, pressure than corporate businesses in the pressure we face. Pressures come from external sources such as weather/drought, government legislation and reduced finance from economic conditions that impact on commodity prices and interest rates. Pressures also come from within our farm business, farm family and from individual goals and needs. Issues such as lack of time to get things done, different goals of family members for business direction and difficulty finding, paying and keeping good workers cause pressure on farm family businesses.

This resource provides a series of three checklists to identify pressures at the farm business, farm family and personal levels.

Once pressures have been identified, the resources refers to a series of 10 guides which provide more information and practical actions.
