Agriculture Victoria and Meridian Agriculture are calling for Expressions on Interest to be part of ACE programs to be delivered in north-east and south-west Victoria.


The ACE Program will assist beef and sheep producers to generate improvements in business profit and productivity through:

  • Undertaking a business health check
  • Use of key physical and business performance indicators to objectively assess business strengths and weaknesses
  • Identifying priorities for change and an action plan to address identified priorities
  • Learning how to assess risk and build risk into business decision making
  • One on one support for your business.

A key aspect of the program is the opportunity to have a comprehensive analysis of the production and financial performance of your own business for the 2019/20 financial year.

The program will consist of 6 half-day sessions in the first half of 2021, with one group in north-east Victoria and another in south-west Victoria (dates and final locations TBC). The program will be led by Paul Blackshaw, Farm Business Consultant, Meridian Agriculture.


Cost: $350 per business.

When: It is anticipated that the program will run from late February to early June 2021.
