Wellington Shire Council will host the Gippsland-wide Farming for Success 2022 Agriculture Conference next month, showcasing innovation, emerging markets and growth in the industry.
Guest speakers from the agribusiness sector will share their experiences at the conference in Sale on Tuesday 8 March.
Wellington Shire Council Mayor Ian Bye said the sector was a major employer and economic contributor to the region.
"Farmers here in Wellington have had everything thrown at them in the last five years, from drought to fire, flood to earthquake, and on top of it a worldwide pandemic," Cr Bye said.
"By bringing the industry together like this, people can share their experiences and learn from others, and they will continue innovating in order to remain strong into the future."
Guest speakers at Farming for Success 2022 include Damian Bell from Wagner Corporation, Angus breeder Luke Stuckey, Molly Coleman from Buhler, Jon Lambert from Heartwood Plantations, Jeremy Haw from Hussey & Co, Jen Smith from Gippsland Agricultural Group, and Food and Fibre Gippsland's Elena Nauta.
The conference will be hosted by ABC's national rural reporter Kath Sullivan, who grew up in Sale.
It will be held at Laurels Function Centre at the Sale Turf Club from 9am to 4pm.
Tickets cost $20 which includes morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea. Visit wellingtonvic.eventbrite.com to book online.
