Business EDGE had been developed by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA).

Is your grazing business providing you with more than just a job?

Grazing businesses require a lot of capital and labour.

Is yours providing you with sufficient returns given the capital and time you invest in it or is it just providing you with a job?

Successful grazing businesses are generating sufficient profits to reward their owners for both their capital investment in the business and their efforts in running the business. This puts these businesses in a position to be able to fund growth, debt reduction, retirement and succession. Growing the business skills and financial literacy of your management team is the starting point to improved financial performance.
