Farmers hear all the latest

In a first for the Regional Council of Goyder, 'Farming conversations - a future focus' Agricultural Conference was held with great success.

More than 50 people, including farmers, presented for the event which was funded through the Commonwealth's Drought Communities Program - one of many events put on for the communities through this program.

The event saw presenters Dr Rick Llewellyn (CSIRO), Emma Shattock (Elders), Duncan Redman (Dare to Dream Mentoring) and Deb Purvis (Robinson-Sewell Partners) give insight into a range of topics.

Conversations about animal health, pasture recovery, financial management in dry times and creating a business mindset saw great feedback from those in attendance.

Council will discuss the option of making this an annual event for the region.
