The forum, being held on 5 October, will focus on animal handling safety design, technology and leadership and will include visits to three local properties.

The day will begin with a site visit to S. Kidman & Co’s Rockybank property southwest of Roma to view the new set of cattle yards on the property, followed by a visit to ACC’s Brindley Park feedlot and nearby property Niella to view the bud box system and yards.

On return to Roma, a light lunch will be provided followed by short presentations on WH&S at the Explorer’s Inn. Participants will need to be at the Explorer’s Inn, Roma by 6.30am to be ready for a 7am departure to Rockybank. The visits and forum will conclude by 3pm.
