Kit Pharo – Ranching Made Profitable, Enjoyable and Sustainable
A well-known rancher and speaker from Cheyenne Wells in Colorado, USA, Kit Pharo runs Pharo Cattle Company with wife Deanna and son Tyson. Starting out as a small ‘Mum & Dad’ operation, they are now an internationally renowned stud selling over 900 bulls per year.
Kit authors the famous Herd Quitter blog, which has over 26,000 active subscribers. Herd Quitter is a term coined to refer to those people who have the courage to break away from the status quo, herd mentality way of thinking. Early in Kit’s cattle business life, he discovered that increasing production wasn’t nearly as important as increasing profits AND there was very little correlation between production and profit. In order to become more profitable, he and Deanna had to become ‘herd quitters’.
Kit’s philosophies and genetics have been proven to increase profit per acre in nearly all environments and have helped producers around the world find the competitive advantage.
Topics Kit will cover include:
- Managing your grass
- Calving in sync with nature
- Selecting animals for profitability
Kit visited Australia in 2015 where he spoke at a sell-out event at Rockhampton’s Beef Week.
Terry McCosker: Impact Investing – Opportunities for Regenerative Agriculture
As a nationally renowned innovator, speaker and educator in regenerative agriculture, Terry McCosker needs little introduction. He has had an inordinate impact on agricultural practices both in Australia and around the world over many years. Terry co-founded RCS over 30 years ago, setting the benchmark for capacity building in rural and regional Australia. His pioneering ways continue to pave in-roads to a more profitable future for food and fibre producers across the country.
Terry will speak on the relatively new concept of impact investing (funds invested with the intention to generate a measurable, beneficial social or environmental impact alongside a financial return), its fit with regenerative agriculture and how producers can best position their business to take advantage of the opportunities it will present.
David McLean: Hard Business Decisions Made Easier
RCS Chairman David McLean is a highly sought-after educator, advisor and public speaker with a refreshing combination of hands-on experience and technical knowledge. David’s extensive experience in, and passion for agricultural business analysis and management have seen him work in an advisory capacity with some of the country’s top beef and sheep producers.
During this seminar, David will show how to make decisions with confidence by identifying and eliminating factors which are often the undoing of many businesses.
