The group will have the opportunity to analyse the business and provide suggestions as to the best strategy to take the business forward for the future.

Robert Taylor (Galbraith) will also discuss enterprise profitability and finance opportunities for new entrants and young farmers alike.

This meeting will provide both new entrants and young farmers with the necessary skills and tools to analyse business performance and enterprise opportunities from an objective viewpoint.
