Growing SA grain and livestock conference

Sheep Central, March 10, 2023

EXPRESSIONS of interest to attend South Australia’s premier grain and livestock conference – Growing SA – have been opened.

The event will return on 30 August 2023 in a new venue — the Adelaide Convention Centre — that is expected to host up to 300 people.

Grain Producers SA Chief Executive Officer Brad Perry said the full day conference will canvass key issues like input costs, sustainability, biosecurity, connectivity, labour and market access.

He said the event will have an array of speakers, attracting local and interstate guests.

The new format will be heavily focused on current issues, research and policy information that is important for grain and livestock producers, including concurrent sessions for both sectors.

“Growing SA is a conference for grain and livestock producers created by grain and livestock producers and that’s what makes it so unique.

“Off the back of a record grain season and with livestock production positive, we are excited to be bringing Growing SA to the Adelaide Convention Centre where producers and key industry stakeholders will traverse for a full-on day of education, innovation and creativity,” Mr Perry said.

Livestock SA chief executive officer Travis Tobin said Growing SA is about bringing broadacre agriculture together, exchanging ideas, challenging current thinking and continuing to advance the state’s livestock and grain industries.

“Growing SA is an opportunity for producers, industry service providers and stakeholders, politicians and policymakers from across South Australia to engage in a two-way dialogue regarding policy issues and network at a once-a-year event.

“Biosecurity has been a key issue for the South Australian livestock sector, and we will have a focus on biosecurity in break-out sessions at Growing SA.”
