Future Focus

Planning your farming future - together

Future Focus brings sheep and beef farming partners together to achieve their business goals and aspirations – using a team approach to business planning.

Building on our Understanding Your Farming Business (UYFB) programme, Future Focus equips and supports you to decide what’s most important in your future, then use that to plan for your business. It recognises that partners working together is vital to success.


This two-day programme is a chance to take time out to work purely on your business instead of in your business. Reduce stress and share the load by planning and making decisions together.

Guided by our expert facilitators, you'll open up new conversations with each other and learn from other farmers in a similar position.
