What people are saying

The best thing about the GrazingforProfit™ School was having the tools presented to gain success from working on the land. Also, having the battery charged to step out and have a go. Remove all doubt, this course is a good investment, not just for the grazier but any person interested in improving performance on any level will get something from this.

We genuinely care about the well-being of our clients. Since 1985 we have worked with clients to see our vision for agriculture become a reality. RCS exists purely to see happy people running productive, profitable businesses using regenerative management practices that leave the land in a better condition than we started. We work closely with you to help you through the challenges that implementing change can bring. It is the one thing to point out to you that you have a problem or need to improve in a particular area; it is another to be at your side leading and coaching you through the process. That is the RCS difference. We work closely with you to understand the complexity of your individual circumstance and work with you to develop a process to implement improvement that is customised to your unique situation and your ability to handle change. We are committed to developing long-term relationships. We are renowned for our follow up support and become a “part” of most families and management teams we work with. RCS is now starting to work with a large number of 2nd and even 3rd generation clients! RCS has the best clients! We also have a team of experienced and passionate people working across Australia. All of our key delivery people started as RCS clients! It is safe to say we can honestly empathise with you as we do our best to understand your unique circumstances. If you didn’t get amazing value out of working with RCS, we wouldn’t still be here!

The 2018 RCS ProfitProbe™ economic benchmarking report has been released, and the numbers are less than rosy (no surprises here). However, as RCS Chairman David McLean explains, some great opportunities are presented for those operators who know what’s going on in their business. Remember – luck favours the prepared. Get your business benchmarked so you can make informed, confident decisions and take advantage of those opportunities!

Thanks Beef Central for the article!

What's in the cards for agriculture? If Gabe Brown's predictions are accurate (and we reckon they are), those producers practising regenerative ag will soon be reaping the rewards.
