When you create your farm business in Farm Focus, your first working plan is automatically created for you.  As this is the plan you’ll revise and reforecast throughout the year, it’s important you enter your actual opening livestock numbers.

To remind you, a notification will appear in the top right corner of your screen, prompting you to enter opening livestock numbers into your working plan.
