Paul Blackshaw is a farm business advisor with Meridian Agriculture, based in Rutherglen in North East Victoria. Paul provides services in farm financial analysis, benchmarking, farm business performance, and succession planning. He previously worked as a Farm Business Economist for Agriculture Victoria, delivering the Livestock Farm Monitor Project, and as a Rural Financial Counsellor.
Paul has been involved in the Young Farmer Business Bootcamps over the past few years, and enjoys motivating young farmers to understand their businesses, being challenged by the groups, and hearing farmers backgrounds, aspirations and goals.
Paul understands that farm businesses are very complex and for those new to farming and business management it can take time to get your head around it all, but that farming can be a very profitable and a very rewarding career for those willing to gain further understanding.
Over the next few weeks we will be introducing a short range of videos and accompanying articles on Informed Decision Making by Paul Blackshaw from Meridian Agriculture. These articles were first published in Meridian Agriculture’s newsletter series. As part of these newsletter articles, we took some time to ask Paul a little bit about himself and you can view it below.
Head onto Meridian Agriculture to have a browse through all of their newsletters.
