The 2022 Victorian Farmers Federation (VFF) Grains and Livestock Conference is back after years of COVID-19 forced delays and is set to tackle the big challenges, issues and opportunities facing both the Victorian grains and livestock industries.
VFF Grains President Ashley Fraser said the event will be an opportunity not to be missed and encouraged all growers to meet in person and discuss the current landscape of the industry.
“Whilst we’ve enjoyed some of the best seasons in living memory recently, the reality is we’re facing some real issues that are impacting farmers.”
“Supply chain delays, high input costs and volatile international trade markets are just some of the issues growers are keeping a close eye on,” Mr Fraser said.
VFF Livestock President Steve Harrison urged livestock producers to attend and likewise said Victorian livestock farmers are navigating some pressing issues.
“The opportunity to get together as an industry after years of being kept apart is reason enough to attend. I’m looking forward to meeting some farmers that we would not would necessarily get the chance to meet.”
“It promises to be a fantastic event and an important chance to discuss issues that matter to livestock farmers, including supply chain resilience and succession planning,” Mr Harrison said.
The Conference will be held on Tuesday 21 June at Mercure Hotel and Convention Centre in Ballarat. A welcome event will be held on the evening of Monday 20 June.
Registration are open until Friday 3 June and further details are available on the VFF website or you can call the VFF on 1300 882 833.
