The founders of Total Result Ag Consulting, Tom and Rebecca Thorn, both have an extensive understanding of the Australian dairy industry with a practical/hands-on work history. From dairy farm hands to owner operators of a 400-cow family farm, they move from a practical portfolio to over 20 year combined experience at an executive level in the field of farm business management and nutrition services specializing in large herd nutrition, financial analysis and business management consulting.
It was this exhaustive resume along with a drive to succeed in their own business that lead them to launch Total Result Ag Consulting or as it is commonly referred to, in an area that was common to their work place experience as well as a district that needed the provision of top-level services for dairy industry leaders.
And since starting in March 2007, Tom & Rebecca Thorn, have seen the business grow at a phenomenal rate. The initial business model, comprising of the unique service program offered to top dairy farm businesses throughout south east South Australia, was seen to be inadequate within the first few months of the trading in almost every aspect.
This region, combined with the Fleurieu District in the states mid-south, represents 79% of the state’s total dairy production with the average production for the south eastern region exceeding 7,000 litres per cow – almost 1,500 litres above the national average. And with the sheer size of the operations within the area as well as the South Australia’s dairy industry target of 1.2 billion litres of milk by 2013, Total Result Ag Consulting saw the need to expand its horizons beyond the standard nutrition advisory service.
So recognized the demand to expand into different regions and take on new markets (corporate farms in addition to private farms) and also met the needs of the clients by supplying more business coaching and staff mentoring programs and support the full package with with an array of mineral and additive products.
These factors have set the target for to be a result focused agri-business providing outstanding service to both the corporate and private sectors of the dairy industry with leading edge support tools, on-farm procedures and high quality nutritional minerals and additives that achieve the end result for all involved - A PROFITABLE BUSINESS.
