Thanks for Coming to our ‘What does your harvest spell?’ 2017 Seminar

In the last week of February and into early March this year’s seminar team hit the road to deliver the workshop ‘What does your 2017 harvest spell? A seminar that puts the pieces together.’

Visiting grain growers across the Eyre Peninsula and through the mid north of South Australia our industry experts using strategy of the day, empowered over 150 growers with the knowledge and tools to better help manage, protect and grow their ‘grain gains’.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our attendees we hope you gained some long-term value from your time spent in ‘off farm’ planning, we certainly appreciate the effort you made to be there.
