Annual Farm Forum

Our annual Farm Forums consist of information sessions for farmers and landholders that can give an introductory insight into current & innovative topics. It is also an opportunity for land managers to get off farm and hear interesting topics with their peers. The evening sessions allow a broader cross section of the community to attend.
