Matt Barton

Matt is a fifth-generation farmer in central NSW, who began working with RCS in a part time role in 2007. At University he studied accounting and finance, completing his Bachelor of Financial Administration in 1987. He worked in the financial markets in Sydney and held the role of Corporate Treasurer for a mid-level miner before returning to agriculture in the mid 1990’s. While in Sydney he completed a post-graduate Diploma in Applied Finance and Investment and his professional accounting qualifications. 

On returning to agriculture one of Matt’s first endeavours was to re-educate himself on industry best practice and there his partnership with RCS began. After completing GrazingforProfit® in 1996 and as part of ExecutiveLink®, Matt implemented strategic changes to his business and became involved in the early adoption of pasture cropping. He used pasture cropping for both cash cropping and ecological regeneration, incorporating sheep and cattle in the off season. In conjunction with RCS, Matt developed Farming & GrazingforProfit in 2007. 

Matt is part of the RCS team as a teacher, advisor and facilitator. He brings a number of attributes to the RCS team, from experience in the corporate and investment sectors of our economy through to sheep, cattle, farming and pasture cropping operations. As an advisor, Matt is able to engage and advise at the operational level and investor/corporate level. Matt’s time in agriculture and RCS involvement has added cropping into the RCS framework. His on-ground understanding of the economic and ecological pressures facing cropping and mixed farming add an important dimension to the RCS team.
