The underlying reason for growth in this space is two fold. Firstly, as a result of the structural shift which is taking place in agriculture, there are a growing number of landowners and stockowners who are looking to exit the industry and yet have a preference to maintain land ownership and, potentially, also livestock ownership. At the same time, there are a number of professional livestock managers who are looking to grow without the high capital costs associated with land ownership.
Rural Directions offers a full day livestock based leasing and share farming workshop which provides participants 'from both sides of the fence' with a number of tools and approaches to facilitate an effective working relationship between a landowner and a farming tenant. Or, if a group workshop does not appeal, an individual consultancy service is also available.
