GenAngus Future Leadership Program
Achmea is a proud partner of Angus Australia. Through our multi-year partnership, we are delighted to deliver the inaugural GenAngus Future Leaders Program in February 2019, designed to support Australia’s next generation of beef and agricultural leaders.
The GenAngus Future Leaders Program articulates Achmea’s strong history of excellence and knowledge sharing, spanning almost two centuries. The program provides the resources to give the next generation of Australia’s beef and agricultural leaders the best chance to develop and learn and will help shape the industry for years to come.
The innovative program has been designed to advance the knowledge and skills of our young agricultural entrepreneurs. Run over twelve months, it includes an intensive three-day workshop, followed by a 12-month mentoring period to boost the growth and development of participants.
The program focuses on the importance of farm risk management, and the numerous ways that young farmers can build the resilience of their businesses. Key elements include financial planning, marketing and promotion, effective networking and the important role of farm and livestock insurance.
Protecting your stud bulls from the moment the hammer falls
As well as Achmea’s funding support for the GenAngus Future Leadership Program, Achmea also offers stud stock insurance, designed to protect your stud bulls from the moment the hammer falls.
Our offering includes our comprehensive stud stock coverage with flexible options to manage the risks for stud stock including accidental loss of use, sickness and disease loss of use as well as mortality and transit cover.
Our flexibility in the level of cover allows farmers to choose the level of cover they need for their business and pay the appropriate premium applicable.
Achmea looks forward to another exciting year partnering with Angus Australia in 2019 and provide tailored farm insurance for its members.
Achmea was a Gold Partner of the 2018 Nuffield Australia National Conference, held in Melbourne in September.
Nuffield has been building the capacity of Australia’s food and fibre producers through research and innovation for over 60 years, and the National Conference brings together new and existing Nuffield Scholars, representatives from across the agriculture sector and producers from around the country.
With a theme of ‘Produce Change’, the two-day conference was full of inspiring research from returning Nuffield Scholars, and reflected the forward-thinking nature of Australian agriculture today.
Nuffield Scholars’ ground-breaking research sees them redefining agriculture in an age of innovation and unprecedented technological advances. Achmea is thrilled to partner with an organisation dedicated to promoting future industry game-changers through knowledge and global research.
