Information notes

Northern Beef Development (NBD)  is assisting WA pastoralists in the Kimberley and Pilbara regions to work with consultants to identify and implement changes to their business to better meet export market demand and specifications, and increase profitability of their cattle herd.

 

The Program has two parts. Part one is a business improvement review through engagement with a consultant. This provides a reimbursement up to a maximum of $10 000 (ex GST) in consultation fees, to develop a business management plan. Participants/ consultants are required to provide an executive summary of the business plan with essential key performance indicators with two subsequent annual reviews (milestone’s two and three).

Part Two is the business improvement implementation phase. $15 000 (ex GST) is available to each participant to implement prioritised strategies that are identified by them and outlined in the business improvement plan.
