The Big Community Muster

Many of our community’s farmers are facing some of the driest conditions in Australia’s history.

To provide an opportunity for our farming community to share experiences and discuss ways to build on our inherent resilience, Riverine Plains Inc has joined with a number of other organisations in sponsoring a series of information forums that aim to provide practical insights to support farmers in preparing for the future.

The Big Community Muster Events will be held from Sunday 24 February – Friday 1 March at locations including Oaklands, Deniliquin, Hay, Condoblin, Nyngan, Baradine, Rowena, Moree, Narrabri, Gunnedah, Tamworth and Scone.

The Keynote Speaker at each event will be Dennis Hoiberg from Lessons Learnt Consulting, along with Gerard O’Brien from RSM Australia and Alister Bennett from ANZ.

International speaker at Corowa GRDC Grains Research Update

Jordan and Jennifer Lindgren of Lindgren Farms, Canada have won the 2018 Saskatchewan Outstanding Young Farmers of the Year award for their unique ability of applying R&D to their farm to drive farm business profitability.

Lindgren Farms is a grain and oilseed farm that works diligently at maximising production for these crops, while minimising cost of production. They do this with the help of field scale trials that identify products, genetics and practices that work on their farm. By combining these methods, with the latest advancements in technology, they continue to meet and exceed their production goals.

In his presentation Jordan will discuss their approach to using research to improve their bottom line.
