  • Family living on sub-standard drawings

Too frequently these are utilised as a management technique. An agricultural based business should ...

  • Stand equally with any commercial investment
  • Grow ahead of the declining Terms of Trade
  • Provide a fair salary at least equivalent to what an independent manager would be paid
  • Generate commercially attractive profit
