MLA delivers the practical results of its R&D investments by providing producers with education, training and opportunities to change on-farm practice.
MLA supports extension and training opportunities with practical information, tools and calculators to assist producer decision making, with the aim of achieving long-term productive and profitable businesses.
In 2019, MLA supported the delivery of 15 Paperless Farm Office workshops throughout red meat producing regions of WA. In addition to supporting these workshops, MLA and Profitable Grazing Systems also partnered with Rural Edge to deliver a Supported Learning Program (SLP) which is a producer upskilling program based on supported learning and coaching.
As part of Profitable Grazing Systems, Rural Edge will deliver the “Managing People for Success” program throughout 2019 and 2020. The “Managing People for Success” Program includes workshops, coaching sessions and the development of a farm-specific project to allow producers the opportunity to learn by practising, apply new skills with other producers and be involved in learning long term through coaching and peer-to-peer learning and hands-on practice.
