Ever wondered about the future of protein? How will we feed a growing population who are increasingly seeking protein in their diet??
At this morning's Agrichats presented by the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW’s Youth Group we are talking all things the Future of Protein from 10:30am. From red meat to insects, plant-based proteins to alternative cell-based proteins (or lab-meat) it's all on the table with our expert panel.
For those not at the Sydney Royal Easter Show you can follow along online using #agrichats.
It's Show Time! The Sydney Royal Easter Show officially starts today - and you'll find us in the cattle ring.
Did you know the feature breed this year is the Angus? And if you're heading to this year's show, be sure to go along the Animal Walk and visit all the animals that come to the show!
Today is International Women's Day. A global day to celebrate the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of all women. A day to acknowledge that we are better together, and call for #BalanceforBetter in accelerating gender parity.
Today we acknowledge the women around the world who have inspired, mentored and cheered us on in our journey. They have come from all walks of life. They champion ideas, campaigns and people. They support, love and believe in others. They help to grow ideas, movements and inspire change.
We too acknowledge the men who champion and support women, and campaign for women.
Because of you, all of you, we are richer. Thank you!

Today is the last day to get along to Brickvention 2019!
Tickets are available from the Brickvention website here: www.brickventures.com
This build is one of hundreds of original builds on display - many with a historical focus. The build by Miles Russell looks at the Battle of Salamanca which occurred in 1812.
One of our highlights of Brickvention each year is the big train display by the Melbourne L-Gauge Train Club. All made from LEGO this big working train set wanders through scenes, towns and over bridges! The farm scene in this build was made by Janco Heunis, and the grain silo in the background by Sarah Brennan-Dunn.
Don't forget Brickvention is open for the final day tomorrow. You can purchase your ticket here: www.brickventures.com
