Biggen­den hosts ag fo­rum at the Grand

Central and North Burnett Times - - PULSE -

IF YOU’RE keen to stay in the know about any­thing re­lated to the agri­cul­ture in­dus­try, then this fo­rum is a must at­tend for you.

BIEDO will be host­ing its Ag Net­work Fo­rum at the Biggen­den Grand Ho­tel on Fe­bru­ary 6.

BIEDO’s ag net­work ex­ten­sion of­fi­cer Sarah Shaw said this meet­ing would give the re­gion’s farm­ers a chance to ask any ques­tion about re­cent reg­u­la­tions.

“We’ve got rep­re­sen­ta­tives from the De­part­ment of En­vi­ron­ment and Sci­ence com­ing along to up­date us on the new reef reg­u­la­tions that were im­ple­mented at the end of last year,” Ms Shaw said.

“The aim of the fo­rum is to pro­vide prac­ti­cal in­for­ma­tion to farm­ers so they know what they have to do to com­ply with the reef reg­u­la­tions.”

Held quar­terly through­out the year, both the North and South Bur­nett fo­rums aim to dis­cuss a va­ri­ety of dif­fer­ent top­ics that re­late to farm­ers.

“We some­times dis­cuss top­ics that farm­ers sug­gest they want to hear about, or it can be top­i­cal things in the news at the mo­ment,” Ms Shaw said.

The free fo­rum will run from 3—4pm, and ques­tion time will be held at the end.
