Sheep Central, April 22, 2024

LAMBEX, the world’s biggest sheep, lamb and wool forum, today released the program for its 2024 event in Adelaide, South Australia, on 7-9 August.

LambEx chair and South Australian sheep producer Jason Schulz said the LambEx 2024 program is big.

“It features headline acts, global pioneers, industry innovators, thought-leaders, disruptors and personalities to shape a blockbuster schedule and format that we are confident will get sheep peeps excited,” he said.

“This program has been years in the making and the LambEx Organising Committee have had robust debate via an extensive process to explore every angle and curate a program that we believe compels members of the Australian and international sheep, lamb and wool industries to attend.

“The 2024 line-up is decidedly pointed to generate conversations about issues of urgency facing the Australian industry and designed to propel advancement of collective thinking that will take our industry forward with purpose,” Mr Schulz said.

“Australia is a world leader in sheep with a global reputation, being the largest exporter of commercial lamb and one of the world’s largest wool producers.

“So, it makes sense we also lead from the front in showcasing the best of our industry to our own members and those from abroad, being LambEx24,” he said.

“The LambEx program unpacks the industry starting from the top with headline acts Global AgriTrends founder Brett Stuart, food scientist Dr Anneline Padayachee, ZQ Merino chief executive officer Angus Street and British ag commentator Clare Taylor, before delving down into key operational takeaways in breakout sessions including a special French butchery masterclass with local Adelaide restauranteur and bold chef Duncan Welgemoed,” Mr Schulz said.

Stan Grant – ‘Matters of currency’ oration & facilitated panel discussions

Dr Anneline Padayachee – The Food Scientist – consumer insights into lamb

“There is so much happening in the plenary room and a bursting trade floor that delegates will need an extra boost of adrenalin to get themselves through the absolutely jam-packed LambEx24 schedule,” Mr Schulz said.

    This is a very uninspiring list of presenters. At a time of huge turmoil for our industry there is no-one really talking about the big issues such as markets and why we are not being paid enough.

    $1200 for a ticket. No thanks. This is far too expensive.
