Fair to say the farming community contains its fair share of geniuses and unheralded engineers. Problems that need to be solved on farm normally result in a creative solution. Well now the brains trust behind the Australian Dairy Conference will give 10 farmers the chance to pitch their brilliant ideas at the ADC in Melbourne next February. A shortlist of up to 10 finalists will be given five minutes to present their concept to a judging panel and conference delegates. They’ll need to demonstrate why their idea is the number one thing farmers should introduce when they get back to the farm. Like all great ideas, we’re guessing simplicity will be the key. Entries close October 2. Head to www.australiandairyconference.com.au to register.
