CATTLE producers visiting this year’s Norco Primex Field Days near Casino next month will have a unique opportunity to hear direct from the experts on key issues relating to ag carbon and the cattle market.
Beef Central is hosting a free seminar program from 9am to Noon at Primex on Friday, November 11.
While northern NSW has received a drenching over the past three weeks, conditions are now drying out and the field days are still well and truly on track.
The first seminar session will update producers on key carbon farming developments of relevance to their own operations, whether they are well down the path of entering into carbon projects or simply seeking an understanding of where to start.
The carbon session will include presentations from Stuart Austin of Wilmot Cattle Co, an update from Al Rayner from CiboLabs on soon-to-be-rolled out free digital farm mapping which will be available to all red meat producers, and a comprehensive overview from Katelyn Lubcke from Meat & Livestock Australia on progress toward the CN 2030 goal.
In the second session producers will have access to a comprehensive update on the cattle market and its outlook from expert speakers including lot feeder Andrew Talbot from Kilara Feedlot, processor Simon Stahl from NCMC Casino and analyst Matt Dalgleish from EP3.
Both seminars will also include Q&A sessions giving attendees plenty of opportunity to ask questions of the presenters.
To be MC’d by the host of the Beef Central Weekly Grill Podcast and ABC Landline founder Kerry Lonergan, and Carbon Central’s Eric Barker, the seminars will also give participating producers the opportunity to test their knowledge in a live cattle industry quiz via the Slido app on their mobile phones, with great prizes to be won.
Attendance is free, but pre-registration is essential. Numbers are filling fast, so please register early to secure a place at this link.
Primex at Casino was established in 1985 and now attracts in excess of 25,000 visitors across the annual three day event.
