What farmers say
Strong partnerships for business growth
John and Jess Skermer are the fourth generation to farm the family land in Chatsworth, Victoria. With three kids, their 1700 acre mixed cropping and merino sheep farm is the ideal place to raise their family, while contributing to their long-standing farming legacy.
Collaboration key to financial success
Musselroe Beef is a family-run operation on 6000 hectares in the North East of Tasmania, Australia. Working closely with their accountant at ProAdvice, and rural bank manager at Commonwealth Bank, Musselroe Beef use Figured and Xero to make smart financial decisions focused on a prosperous future.
A clear picture of farm financial performance
Canterbury dairy farmer, Fraser Tasker, owns a 150ha dairy farm, as well as a support and trading property that is used for raising young stock, lamb trading, beef finishing and selling surplus winter feed. Not surprisingly, with so much going on, there’s a bit to keep on top of around the finances of these properties.
Turning the tables when things got tough
Like many dairy farmers, Waikato couple, Wendy and John, found themselves in a difficult position after the challenges of recent seasons. But with Figured and Xero, and support from their key advisers, they have confidently moved forward in a profitable position without the burden of debt holding them back.
Achieving Transparency & Valuable Business Insights
Fourth generation farming operation, McNeil Farming, is one of the largest on the East Coast. Having doubled in size in the last 6 months, they needed a system that would help them achieve real transparency across the entire business.
Time Spent Managing Accounts Halved
Ashburton farmers, Lee-Anne and Norm, run three farms. They have enough to keep them busy without to having to worry about spending long hours on the accounts, which was why they were motivated to start looking for a better solution for managing the finances of their farming business.
Collaboration with the Farming Team
Will Foley is a sheep and beef farmer from Hawke’s Bay who was looking for a comprehensive farm financial management system to look at his whole farming picture – not just the cashflow. Now, Figured is giving him up-to-date information that allows him to make more informed decisions.
A Smarter Way to Farm
