The Practical Farmer

Regenerative Agriculture invokes different reactions from different people.  Some practices associated with regen ag have a sound scientific basis, other less so.  Cam Nicholson will take a step back and highlight the fundamentals that underpin sound farming practices and explore what might be different between regen-ag and what many would say is just good farming practice that we’ve been doing for decades.

Robert Herrmann

The Informed Farmer

The roller coaster ride of livestock & wool prices came as a shock & has many wondering what is going on!

 Is this situation different from the past, should we expect more volatility, what is the future for our prices?

The way to try to make sense of it all and to get a feel for what’s ahead is to understand the state of play and what has led us to this point.

In this presentation we will explore the influences that are driving the market, and discuss what we can expect going forward.

Warren Davies

The Unbreakable Farmer

Warren Davies is one of Australia’s leading rural mental health speakers and 
advocates. A farmer, husband, father of five, son, brother, mate, neighbour and everyday bloke, Warren’s authentic, inspiring, and sometimes confronting presentations and workshops on mental health are focused around communication, community, connection and seeking help. He shares the poignant story of his own battles with mental health, of hitting rock bottom, and the lessons he learnt as he picked himself up and pieced his life together again. His story is one of resilience, persistence, and determination - so very important at a time when 
stress, depression and burnout is commonplace.


Jack England

The Future Farmer

Building on skills learnt from my father, adoption of innovative technology and profitable management techniques are at the forefront of my mind. What can we do that will yield greater returns, increase job satisfaction, be easy and interesting to adopt, and that will not cost much to trial?
