The average perceived dollar value of the 2017 'Sheep in Focus' event to participants operating a sheep business, was in excess of $2000 each.
The Agribusiness Today Forum is an initiative of Charles Sturt University (CSU), Faculty of Science, School of Agricultural and Wine Sciences and RDA Central West. The organising committee has since expanded to include the Graham Centre for Agricultural Innovation (an alliance between CSU & NSW DPI), Local Land Services (LLS) Central Tablelands & Central West, Central West Farming Systems (CWFS) and local farmer representatives.
The Forum provides current and future market trends to agricultural industries across the region. Expert speakers are selected and discuss domestic and international markets, improving productivity and sustainability and increasing market opportunities.
The continued success of the Forum has been the result of engagement with regional producers and the agribusiness sector as a whole. The Forum has developed topics over the years in response to feedback from participants wanting more practical information on market and product development that can be implemented in their own businesses.
The Forums commenced in 1995 and have grown from a gathering of 30 exporters at the CSU Orange campus to 200 agribusiness participants attending Forums at different locations across the Central West region.
The Agribusiness Today Forum’s purpose has shifted over the years to provide information direct to producers, advisers and exporters on opportunities in the agribusiness industry through discussion of the complete supply chain from “Paddock to Plate”.
