July 2014 – Condabilla Fish Farm Warms Up Indoors For a Business Workshop
Condabilla Fish Farm located near Chinchilla, Queensland, Australia has had one of their coldest winters for quite a while. Although not perfect conditions for growing their flagship product, Murray Cod, it did give them some time from their very busy schedule to come inside for the day and undertake a business planning and business operations workshop conducted by Mark Oliver at LMC Training. The feedback from the day was very positive even from the technical guys such as Daniel Kearns who said he enjoyed the day and he felt he was a lot more engaged than he thought he would be. Six key staff at Condabilla Fish Farm have been undertaking the Diploma of Aquaculture through LMC including the farm’s owners Rob and Tamara Bartley. As a result of the course, some new management practices have been implemented which will ultimately assist in the productivity of the business.
