Agribusiness-Today-Logo-250x250Business of Beef

Beef producers from across Central West New South Wales have gained a range of ideas to benefit their farm operations from speakers at the recent “The Business of Beef” forum held at Blayney.

More than 200 producers and industry representatives attended the event on Thursday 7th August 2014 which saw a wide range of speakers discuss issues from marketing through to genetic improvement. There were also a number of speakers who focused on production in the paddock during the day, with the focus of the Agribusiness Today forum from paddock to plate.

Feedback from those who attended has been extremely positive with all producers stating they gained valuable information for their enterprise during the day.

Congratulations to the three prize winners of a $200 Silmac voucher each:
