Course presenter

Carmen Quade

of agrifocused explains why offering training in Farm Budgeting is so important to her.

When I started doing the budgets for our farm business, I really had no idea. This is despite coming from a business background with an Agricultural Commerce degree and a Masters in Accounting. Nothing was around that really gave me the skills and knowledge I needed to prepare a good farm budget and quickly get on to everything else that needed doing. On the farm, things change all the time, and it’s your money on the line.

Finding farm business training opportunities was also hard. When opportunities did come up, they were always in the middle of the day and 100km away. With little children and off-farm work, I could rarely make it.


Fast forward 15 years. We have had a couple of ripping droughts, 72 dust storms, a mouse plague, and some cracking harvests. Our farm business and our family has grown. I have learnt a thing or two. After a stint lecturing in agribusiness finance and accounting at university and some expert instruction from my husband and brother-in-law, I now know my stuff. In 2018, I hit the road offering training to farmers in my local area and had a great response; however, too many people were missing out due to busy on-farm programs and the travel distances.
