Hundreds of producers will once again flock to Nampo Park this year for this very popular Future Focus day. The question is: Are the BIG 5 part of your farming operations?

Should you have wondered, we are not talking about game. There are 5 major aspects in your farming operations which determine your cost efficiency, productivity and profitability. These are your strategy, management information systems, resources, finances and partnerships

Are you still using outdated farming methods, or are you struggling with financial planning or farming debt, while you are not keeping up with technological advancements? Do you get the best out of your equipment and would you like to take your farming practices to the next level?

Then this opportunity is the one that you cannot miss. Jaco Minnaar, Chairman of Grain SA and Senwes director, will act as facilitator on this day and will share the successes of other producers with you. These successes are all focused on one of the aspects relating to the BIG 5.

Jaco has been a producer on the farm Botesrust in the Hennenman area for two decades and has been involved with various organised agriculture control structures since 2000, which include various Agri SA policy committees. He has also been a member of the Executive Committee of Free State Agriculture since 2004 and part of the Grain SA management team for the past four years. He is also a director of Senwes and chairman of the Executive Committee of Grain SA and the Remuneration and Risk Committees of Senwes. A farmer in the midst of organised agriculture.

Here it goes about producers helping producers, farming methods and assistance which work for farmers, specifically focused on determining the business success of your farming operations. You cannot go wrong with decades' experience on your doorstep during this day.

Time will also be scheduled for a question and answer session, should you have issues of concern, which will be supplemented by interesting video demonstrations, compacted for your convenience. The who's who of agriculture will also be there - so use the time to network, to manage relationships and to address your personal issues. The day is yours to manage.

To top it all, Rev. Laurie Naude will open the day, popular artist Appel will be in action and you will be able to enjoy a spitbraai and something to drink. At only R100 it is affordable for all producers, their staff and business partners. The funds will be in aid of the different young farmer committees.

This day has been presented since 2004, in proud co-operation with Grain SA and the young farmer committees of Free State Agriculture and Agri NW and is a place where sustainable solutions for producers are sought.
