Farm Writers goes online:

Gazing into their respective crystal balls - what does the rest of 2020 hold for local farmers?

Webinar: Friday 3 July, 12:30pm
 
New South Wales farmers have had a tough few years – and after what some have described as the best seasonal break on record, there is a spring in their step as they contemplate the season ahead.  Indicators are pointing to bumper harvests, fat animals and strong market prices – but will the ongoing uncertainty of COVID-19, access to markets and consumer sentiment temper this glimmer of hope?
 
The Farm Writers’ Association of NSW invites you to a free webinar with a panel of industry experts who will gaze into their respective crystal balls and give us their predictions for the remainder of 2020. They’ll also take your questions on the day to give us a better picture of life on the farm.
 
Our 3 July webinar presenters are:
 
Scott Hansen, Director-General, NSW Department of Primary Industries
 
Phin Ziebell, Agribusiness Economist, NAB
 
Matthew Coulton, A/g General Manager – Water Program, Bureau of Meteorology
 
Date: Friday 3 July 2020
Time: 12:30pm (the webinar will be open 10 minutes before the start time)
Platform: Zoom – a unique link will be sent to your email upon registration
Cost: Free

Welcome to Farm Writers

The Farm Writers' Association of NSW was established in 1966 as the Farm Writers' and Broadcasters' Society of NSW.

Its aim is to foster communication about and promote the interests of rural Australia in general and the NSW farm sector in particular.

Farm Writers plays an important role in helping to strengthen links and understanding between the rural sector and the wider Australian community.

Regular forums held in Sydney provide a unique and respected platform for industry leaders, expert commentators, entrepreneurs and activists to communicate with a wide range of audiences and influencers.

The Association also provides a forum for rural journalists and other agri-communicators to discuss rural industry developments and issues in a networking environment with people involved in farming, food and fibre processing, marketing, regulation, and rural politics.

Farm Writers invites you to join us at our monthly lunch seminars and at Agribuzz, our quarterly evening networking functions.
