Industry Dev: Growing SA /
SAVE THE DATE: Growing SA is back in August 2023
South Australia’s premier grain and livestock conference – Growing SA – will return on 30 August 2023 with a new venue and engaging topics.
Anticipating 300 attendees, Growing SA will be held over one jam packed day at the Adelaide Convention Centre in the city, making it more easily accessible for producers.
The new format will be heavily focused on current issues, research and policy information that is important for grain and livestock producers.
Grain Producers SA Chief Executive Officer Brad Perry said the full day conference will offer an array of speakers, attracting local and interstate guests.
“Growing SA is a conference for grain and livestock producers created by grain and livestock producers and that’s what makes it so unique,” said Mr Perry.
“Off the back of a record grain season and with livestock production positive, we are excited to be bringing Growing SA to the Adelaide Convention Centre where producers and key industry stakeholders will traverse for a full-on day of education, innovation and creativity.
“Some of the key issues that will be canvassed during the conference will include input costs, sustainability, biosecurity, connectivity, labour and market access.”
Livestock SA Chief Executive Officer Travis Tobin said Growing SA is about bringing broadacre agriculture together, exchanging ideas, challenging current thinking and continuing to advance the state’s livestock and grain industries.
“Growing SA is an opportunity for producers, industry service providers and stakeholders, politicians and policymakers from across South Australia to engage in a two-way dialogue regarding policy issues and network at a once-a-year event,” said Mr Tobin.
“Biosecurity has been a key issue for the South Australian livestock sector, and we will have a focus on biosecurity in break-out sessions at Growing SA.”
