pasture assessment and measurement
options for and economics of supplementary feeding
animal health and condition
market options and outlook
rural resilience and financial counselling.
Presenters include:

Doug Alcock (Grazprophet Consulting)
Helen Schaefer (SE LLS, District Veterinarian)
Stewart Smith (livestock agent)
Ted O’Kane (Rural Resilience Officer NSW DPI).
Lunch will be provided.
