Troy Setter: CEO - Consolidated Pastoral Company

Friday June 28, 2019

Australia is one of the key producers in the global beef market. As climatic conditions continue to challenge local producers, many are looking closely at their operating methods and business models. Meanwhile, some consumers are questioning how beef – and protein generally – is produced.

Join us at Farm Writers on Friday 28 June to hear Troy Setter talk about how the beef industry is being impacted by foreign investment, general market confidence and vertical integration, as well as alternative and competing protein sources.  

Troy has been spear heading one of Australia’s largest and most publicised sales of a single portfolio. Hear how the business has managed the distraction at the same time as dealing with one of the most challenging periods the beef industry has seen in recent times.

Date: Friday 28 June
Venue: The Grace Hotel, York St Sydney
Time: 12 for 12:30pm
Price: $80 Members, $100 Non-Members

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.
