Recently I returned from visiting a bunch of new GrowFARM clients in a particular area of NZ. They blew me away with the sheer joy they oozed after finally discovering how to make profit from their sheep and beef farms. This was after years of being told by the industry to increase production/gross farm income/lambing percentages and eat all the dry matter they grow - you name it! They are only a few weeks into their time with us and are learning the background and principles behind how to generate sheep and beef farm profit, yet were like first year students on a new adventure! New! I thought about that – why would they not know about how to create a successful sheep and beef farm business after many years of farming?
Putting together sheep and beef farmers of like value systems creates incredible opportunities! The power and focus created when they mastermind together for a common purpose is just what our NZ Sheep and Beef farming industry needs, and this is exactly what was created when GrowFARM clients from around NZ attended the GrowFARM National Mastermind Meeting for 2 days last week in Hamilton.
