Farmers from across New South Wales will gather in Sydney this month to discuss and debate the future direction of their industry.
NSW Farmers annual conference is a key event on farmers’ calendars and is the grassroots policy-setting platform for the association.
More than 300 farmers will gather at Luna Park for three days to hear from guest speakers, enjoy social events and debate more than 70 motions on topics ranging from coal seam gas to wild dogs and drought policy.
Motions passed at conference will help to form the policy priorities of the association for the next 12 months.
Member of NSW Farmers and conference stalwart Kathryn Davies from Broken Hill said coming to conference was a fantastic opportunity to input into the direction of agriculture in NSW.
‘It is great to have my say on the motions which come in from all of the different regions. I feel like my voice counts and I enjoy putting forward the views of my region,’ she said.
‘Being a member gives me opportunities that I would not get otherwise and annual conference is just one of the many reasons why farmers should be members of NSW Farmers,’ Ms Davies concluded.
