RCS has been working alongside farming families for over 30 years.
Visit the pages below to see how you can use our experience and proven track record of empowering, guiding and supporting rural families and people like you to create life changing outcomes for your people, land, livestock, crops and business.
GrazingforProfit™ is Australia’s premier business school for the agricultural industry. With over 7,000 graduates, it is also the longest running, and most attended management school conducted in rural Australia. As a graduate you leave empowered with cutting edge knowledge, motivation and confidence to go home and implement transformational change to your people, land, livestock and business.
Elite Professional Development
We have a couple of options to keep the momentum and support.
Managing for Profit is a live online forum with other graduates that leads to powerful discussion, ongoing support, momentum and connection. Each fortnight experienced RCS coaches and teachers revisit key principles on land, production, business and people, and step through your questions. Check out this 3 min YouTube with David explaining the program.
RCS Next Steps is a six-month program with your very own coach. It is designed for GrazingforProfit™ graduates to help you gain maximum leverage off your investment, and to put learnings in place back home. It includes a full farm diagnostic as well as support to implement the foundations of professional management. Once these skills are implemented, everything else becomes so much easier.
ExecutiveLink™ (EL) provides a structured forum in which a group of like-minded people can, by acting as advisory directors, work together on their respective businesses to be economically, socially and ecologically successful.
EL is our best kept secret, and the reason producers grow from an industry average 1.75% Return on Assets, to 5.24%. The EL program has an education component in both personal and technical development, in addition to professionally facilitated rounds of board discussions that complement the strategic management of your business.

One-on-one farm support is available for those who want time with an RCS Advisor. Our Team is experienced and trained to support in business planning, financial analysis, improving production, property development planning, family succession, pre-purchase assessments, and they even do guest speaking spots too.
The services are tailored to suit your particular requirements. More examples of our services are described here.
ProfitProbe™ is a convenient and timely business analysis and benchmarking tool, which will help you make positive steps for your business’ future.
High performing businesses have been making comparisons between themselves and others for many years without necessarily labeling the exercise as benchmarking.
In many ways, comparing your own performance from year to year as business decisions are made is just as powerful as comparing your results against your peers.
The new and improved input sheet and automatic analysis provide you with a detailed draft report within two working days in most cases.
