The work Brett O’Brien and OBA Consulting are doing to promote a deepening of agricultural insurance markets in Australia is incredibly important for the future of the country and its agriculture.

Finance and farming go hand-in-hand; they always have. If Australia wants to have a farming future, it has to guarantee farmers access to the finance they need, and that is only possible through affordable insurance.

Kerry on Livestock Drought insurance in Australia states:

Andrew has the following to say about OBA Consulting:

“Creating a product to underpin livestock production in Australia is long overdue. Not only will it significantly improve farmers productivity and profitability in time of disaster, the risk transfer will be far more effective than the current ad-hoc approach the Federal government is currently using for farm businesses.

The Federal Government needs to come together with Brett (OBA Consulting) to find a solution.”

Mark Sheller

“I have worked with Brett on various projects over the last five or so years.

What has always impressed me has been his ability to seamlessly blend a deep understanding of insurance law and commercial common sense.

That is a great skill.

It has always been a pleasure to work with Brett.

With an appreciation and admiration form Australian Agriculture instilled in me by my parents Sheller Legal supports the work OBA Consulting is doing for the betterment of Australian Agriculture”
