GRAIN GUIDE

2018

Relevant

We must fight for our rights, but also make sure that the rights of others are protected. We have

to look after our workers and their circumstances. We must also accept that the pressure on land

tenure and a shift in ownership will become greater in the run-up to the 2019 election. Support and

trust your organisations to fight this battle for you and do not allow political strife to have a negative

effect on your farm.

Partners in agriculture are extremely important now. We as producers cannot look just to ourselves

for solutions, outcomes or opportunities. In order to optimise our effectiveness, we must build

partnerships with suppliers and off-takers. There are a large number of experts out there to assist

you to add value to your farm or to make better decisions. The days of merely writing a cheque and

never seeing the person again are long past. Every partnership must be built on mutual respect

and trust, but both parties should also benefit from a relationship.

Use the

Grain Guide

to choose the right partners and then walk a long-term road with them. Also

use it to measure whether your partners are still the best for your farm and whether they add the

most value.

Happy farming!
