Saddleworth region residents were the first to take part in the AgRi-Silience workshops, learning new techniques to help shore up their businesses.
Hosted by the Coo-ee Collective, the workshop was part of the Farm Business Resilience program, partly funded by the federal Future Drought Fund and the SA government.
The first session had 10 people from give grain and livestock businesses work together to develop a Resilience Roadmap.
AgRi-Silience steering committee chair Samantha Neumann said there had been strong interest in the program from grain and livestock producers across the state, with capacity remaining for more participants.
"The first AgRi-Silience participants have had the chance to take part in a peer group strategic planning process," she said.
"As the program and training continues, the participants will receive one-on-one business coaching and advice and further workshops which will provide access to resources and online tools to support business planning.
"They will also receive training specifically tailored to their individual businesses to ensure each participant gets maximum benefit out of the program."
Workshop participants Robin and Mary-Anne Schwartz, Waterloo, said they were excited about the rest of the AgRi-Silience Program following the first workshop.
"The workshop has challenged us to step outside the business and develop goals on paper," Mr Schwartz said.
"The skills we learned in the first AgRi-Silience workshop will help us to action those goals."
Already, two more sessions have been held in the South East, with another in the Lower South East planned for May 11, and two on Eyre Peninsula planned for June.
Dates for the Mallee, Barossa and Adelaide Hills and Fleurieu Peninsula are yet to be announced.
Grain and livestock producers interested in participating can apply online or download application forms from the GPSA or Livestock SA websites.
