Primary production is an engine room for the state’s economy. It is a shining light when other industries face challenges to growth. The grains industry has recently finished an 11.1 million tonne harvest – the state’s largest on record – and beef, sheepmeat and wool prices are at historic highs with production increasing.

GROWING SA 2017 is the inaugural annual conference of South Australia’s grain and livestock industries. It will be hosted by Grain Producers SA and Livestock SA and is the first time both organisations have partnered to host their yearly gatherings.

The conference is an opportunity for primary producers to hear the latest in policy developments, farm business tips and commodity research while networking with each other and industry service providers and policy decision-makers. GROWING SA 2017 is our chance to put food production in the spotlight in the lead-up to the 2018 State Election.

Through its split sessions and social functions, the conference will:

  • Provide the latest policy and farm business information to help producers boost productivity and profitability.
  • Highlight the state’s broadacre industries as a shining light for innovation, industry growth, and business sustainability.
  • Enable producers, industry service providers. stakeholders, politicians and policy-makers from across SA to engage in two-way dialogue regarding policy issues, plus network, at a once-a-year event.

GPSA and Livestock SA will also host their annual general meetings as part of the day.
