Focus was put on the Beef & Goats enterprises. • Training Gap identified – Lack of Agriseta Accreditation. • Infrastructure Gap –identified with water supply and fencing as the main constraints for a meaningful production. • Governance related matters 44

  5. SECTION 2 - FACTORS LEAD TO Turnaround strategy, AS AT 2010 • 1. GOVERNANCE • No Board of Directors • No Audit Committee • No CEO appointed • No Accredited Trainings • No Policies, Procedures and systems within the finance unit • No Strategy, Forensic investigation conducted 55

  6. FACTORS LEAD TO TAS AS AT 2010 CONT. • 2. FARM BUSINESS MANAGEMENT ISSUES • 2.1.Forestation - Invasion of noxious species e.g. wattle • 2.2. Dairy • 2.2.1.Breeding Stock- unhealthy, low milk production • 2.2.2. Milking Parlour - Outdated 2.3. Beef • 2.3.1. Inbreeded stock - loss of conformation 2.4. Poor Fencing and handling facilities 2.5. Inadequate water storage facilities/irrigation and drinking 2.6. Poor veld management 66

  7. Invasion of noxious species e.g. wattle 2.1 forestation 77

  8. Breeding stock unhealthy-low milk production • Milking parlour- Outdated dairy 88

  9. Inbreeded stock • Loss of conformation • Loss of weight • Loss of fertility • Prone to diseases • Weak genotypically 2.3. beef 99

  10. Well breeded livestock • High feed conversion rate • High fertility • Improved calving percentage • High returns R/kg 1010

  11. Poor Fencing and handling facilities • Injury to the handlers and animals • Time consuming • Labour intensive • Un economical Handling facilities 1111

  12. EFFICIENT, ECONOMICAL, MODERN AND PROFESSIONAL HANDLING FACILITY 1212

  13. NCERA FARMS (PTY) LTD AS AT 2010 Cont… • 3. RESPONSES - TURNAROUND STRATEGY • 3.1. June 2011 the CEO was appointed • 3.2. SWOT analysis was developed (refer to next slide) • 3.3. Turnaround Strategy Developed 1313

  14. Noncompliance to corporate governance & poor business management principles (absence of Board of Directors). Lack of well defined governance & policy framework. Production is largely dependent on climatic conditions which can only be partially manipulated by man through irrigation. Collapsing dairy cost centre with high net losses. Poor agricultural infrastructure (fencing, milking parlour and aging dairy cows). Poor proper camping facilities and farm road maintenance. Inadequate access to sufficient water supply (especially for PTO farmers). Mixed breeds of both dairy and beef enterprises. Uncertainty of farmers due to land reform issues (lack of lease agreements). Relatively high input and capital costs. Poor skills and knowledge of the new farmer entrants. Lack of funding for farming operations and investment on new agro-processing ventures SWOT ANALYSIS STRENGTHS WEAKNESSES • Appointment of the new CEO to turn around the fortunes of the entity. • Strategic plan for 2011/12 to 2015/16 has been developed. • Framework for the establishment of a Stakeholder Council has been developed & agreed upon by all relevant stakeholders. • More than 3000ha of high potential agricultural land available for farming purposes (increasing number of tunnels for hydroponics). • The prevailing soil & climatic conditions of the area are generally conducive for cash crops, grain & livestock production (especially beef). • The entity is only 30km from East London which is the economic hub of the area. • Availability of tailor-made farmer support services of training, mechanisation, and vegetable & livestock production. • Ability to produce vegetables throughout the year by making use of hydroponics. • High potential for beef and goat production. 1414

  15. Availability of various stakeholders (traditional leaders, municipalities, Department of Rural Development & Agrarian Reform, East London Industrial Development Zone, etc.) to forge sustainable partnerships. High market demand for vegetable products (3 million people in Mdantsane Township). The East London Fresh Produce Market is about 40km from the Ncera Farms. Alleviation of poverty and decrease unemployment rate of the area. Increasing demand due to the consumers demand for healthy diets. Potential for increased local market consumption. Increased urbanization. Harmonization of the institutional environment SWOT ANALYSIS CONT… THREATS OPPORTUNITIES • Unaccredited & irrelevant training programmes may lead to preference of other training competitors. • Skewed & undefined technical & advisory services • Lack of programmes directed at supporting local & regional economic growth. • Communal land conflicts and possible land invasions. • Lack of mutual respect between stakeholders • Oversupply of vegetables to the East London Fresh Produce Market which will decrease prices per unit. • Availability and cost of irrigation water. • Impact of climate change (global warming). • Inflation rate with regard to cost of labour, costs of general production inputs. 1515
