New date set for ag tech event

Local Land Services has announced its Big Tech Big Ideas conference and field day, originally was planned for February, will now be held in June.

The two-day event was postponed due to local COVID outbreaks and has now been scheduled for Tuesday, 21 and Wednesday, 22 June taking place at the Trangie Agricultural Research Centre and Dubbo Theatre and Convention Centre.

Central West Local Land Services Mixed Farm Adviser Rohan Leach said the event will feature exciting and emerging technologies that can be applied on mixed farming enterprises, cropping and livestock enterprises.

“We’re excited to bring a great range of new technologies to the Central West and promote some discussions on potential on-farm applications,” Mr Leach said.

“Soil, climate and farm management software and hardware will be on display with presentations and demonstrations throughout the field day.”

A Big Catchup supported by the Young Farmer Business Program will give people a chance to wind down after the field day while hearing real-life stories about innovation success, Mr Leach said.

“We’re also planning a Big Brekky through collaboration with the Farm Business Resilience Program to give people the chance to hear from one of our local producers who has successfully implemented resilient and adaptive technologies in their farm enterprise,” he said.

The conference will feature locally and nationally renowned speakers including industry representatives, researchers and agricultural technology vendors as well as a panel session from producers about their experiences using various ag technologies.
