AgForce Drought Project Manager Tahna Jackson says the Warwick event will be the first of five events being held across Queensland this year under the State Government’s Community Drought Support Program.
“The ‘Managing Risks: Securing the Future’ forum is aimed at providing social support to farming families while providing tips and tools to improve their business, and revitalize their health and well-being.”
Ms Jackson says other topics being discussed including comparing sheep breeds and returns, and the impact of drought on property valuations.
“Financial planning and insurance will be a key focus. Happiness speaker, coach and trainer Kylie Dean will discuss ‘happiness from the inside out’ while Bruce Austin from SuperFriend will outline how to plan a mentally healthy retirement and the ‘five ways to well-being’.”
Advances in technology will also be in the spotlight during the forum with a presentation on a new biosecurity app, discussion on new DEXA meat measurement technology and Aglive representatives rounding out the day with a session on farming in digital times.
The forum is being held at Abbey of the Roses, 8 Locke Street, Warwick on Wednesday 24 May.
