Your Farm - Your Future: Getting on the front foot

How do you review the performance of your business and how regularly? How do you make your business plans attractive to banks when applying for funding? How should the business be structured to avoid potential future problems? These are the kinds of issues you should be discussing with your professional advisers, be they your accountant, agricultural agent or solicitor.
