For farmers, the future is everything. Whether it’s the climate, new technology, business planning or predicting what the market will do, most farmers have more than one eye on what lies ahead.

The North Central CMA and Wimmera CMA are joining forces with farmers to make this easier, by presenting the sixth annual Future Farming Expo at Donald, on Wednesday 21st February.

The expo will provide farmers and industry with new ideas and the latest information on farm management through a quality line-up of keynote presenters, local farmers and industry experts.  The focus of this year’s expo  is  managing risk.  Three local famers will discuss their farming business, providing information on current issues and opportunities within each of their enterprises.  A panel session will be included to allow participants to ask farmers questions relevant to their enterprise.

Sessions will feature information on the latest climate forecasts, soil moisture probes, technology on drones and virtual fencing, business management, succession planning and grain selling and marketing.

Places are strictly limited and bookings and RSVPs are essential on (03) 5448 7124 or email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  by 5 pm Friday 16 February.
