The biennial two day Conference will be held on 3 – 4 July 2019 in Gunnedah, NSW.The theme of the 2019 Conference is “Renewed focus on livestock systems for resilience – the swing back to forages”.
It is an occasion for Primary Producers in North West NSW to come together and consider opportunities to grow.
Grassland NSW Conference Convenor, George Truman said, “The Conference is a premier event for producers managing pasture and livestock systems. It is a two-day
event that will educate, inform, connect and provide opportunities to consider to improve your own business.” The two day Conference is comprised of a series of sessions and presentations. These include: Climate Change and Variability, Economics – Producers Changing – the swing to forages, Livestock Production Systems and Livestock Nutrition as well as Livestock and Plant Genetics. Special Speaker Presentations will give delegates insight into current perspectives, drought conditions and opportunities.
“The drought is still biting and many producers are still very busy feeding, the organisers of the conference recognise the situation and have put together a producer panel, to discuss how they managed the drought and the opportunities they were able take advantage of.”
Bus trips and farm tours are on the agenda along with the opportunity to network at the Conference Dinner. Our after-dinner speaker, Greg Mills. GoAhead Business Solutions, will be addressing Social License, which has been hitting the headlines in recent months.
“We encourage you to be at the forefront of your pasture and livestock systems, by attending the 2019 Grassland Conference,” said George Truman.
