'Stock and Land'* aims to provide a regular forum for members with interest and experience in agriculture to discuss agricultural issues and current developments in farming. Monthly two-hour sessions will feature well informed speakers from particular areas of farming who will share their story, their understanding of current issues and developments in their field of farming. This will be followed by questions and discussion.
The group will also discuss current news and events iin farming and share stories of ‘our farms’
David Palmer is the convenor of this new course supported by Kathy Murphy. A former journalist with the Stock and Land newspaper, David grew up on farms and continues to write articles for agriculture related media while Kathy works with other members of her family on their cattle property at Winton.
*'Stock and Land' is being used as the title for this new group until the group is ready to decide on a more fitting name. 'Stock and Land' clearly captures the context of the course to begin the year, however doesn't fully reflect the range of what might be covered. So prospective participants, get your thinking hats on!
