A shout out to our rural journalists, particularly ABC Rural, who cover the news, the back stories, celebrate rural life and triumph in our successes.
As Matt Brann shared at a recent RAID Network event in Darwin, get to know your local reporter, call with your stories, share your research, your news and your success. They want to help you spread the word!
And maybe a rural journalist is a career you might consider exploring in our National AgDay Careers Competition?
Our creator, Aimee Snowden, is passionate about sharing Australian agriculture.
Last night at their 40th birthday celebrations in Canberra, the National Farmers Federation launched their new initiative #WeAreAustralianFarmers with this short clip here: youtu.be/dyEll90F_Cc
We look forward to seeing this initiative grow, and are particularly excited by the opportunity it presents to amplify the great work being done right across the agricultural industry by many to share our story and celebrate food and fibre production in Australia.
Whether you like plants or animals, are good at maths or the arts, whether you want international travel or to be working the land... We believe there is a career in agriculture for everyone; an opportunity for all, no matter what your passion is!
Explore your future career through the National AgDay Careers Competition. A collaboration between Sydney Science Park, the Archibull Prize, Career Harvest, and ourselves, ahead of National AgDay on November 21.
You can find all the details about the competition (including great prizes up for grabs) here: archibullprize.com.au/careers/index.html
As the sun sets on our trip to Darwin, we wanted to say a big thank you to the Australasia-Pacific Extension Network (APEN) for having us along to their 2019 Conference!
And to everyone who made us feel so welcome, provided us with top end travel tips, and who joined in on some LEGOgraphy fun!
Next weekend, the NSW Rural Fire Service holds their annual #GetReadyWeekend across the state. An opportunity to meet members of your local brigade (many who may be farmers too), join in activities and demonstrations, and jump aboard a truck. The weekend is also an opportunity to plan and prepare your property for the bush fire season ahead.
Tocumwal Rural Fire Brigade held their Open Day today.
Happy Father's Day to all the awesome Dads!
We're off to the Finley Show today (it's an annual tradition)… first stop the LEGO!
Thanks to the great team at the RNA, we have some tickets to Ekka to give away!
Entering couldn't be easier... Find this photo on our Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter, then like the post, and tag who you would bring along.
We will draw the winners on Thursday (8 August) morning the day before Ekka 2019 opens.
We are looking forward to visiting the Ekka: Royal Queensland Show for the first time next weekend (16 to 18 August) and trying the famous Strawberry Sundae! As well as checking our all the RNA has to offer in terms of agricultural education, entertainment and displays. We hear the EkkaNites show is amazing!!
