CHAIN of responsibility and truck road-worthiness will be some of the big issues on the agenda at this year’s Victorian Farmers Federation Grains Pre-Harvest Roadshow.
In the Wimmera, events will be held at Nhill on September 10, and Longerenong and Lake Bolac on September 11.
The roadshow will also feature practical demonstrations and interactive discussions from the Country Fire Authority, Horsham Hydraulics, Mass Management and Grain Corp.
VFF Grains Group president and Warracknabeal farmer Ross Johns said the roadshow was an excellent opportunity for grains producers to get key information before harvest.
“There is no better opportunity for grain producers to go to a meeting in their local community and hear directly from key industry figures in the same place,” he said.
“The roadshow will also be a great opportunity for our grain members to get engaged in the VFF state election campaign to ensure election candidates are delivering for agriculture.
“I would encourage all grains growers to find their nearest event and come along. One good piece of advice could prove invaluable with harvest on the way.”
Admission is free for grain growers, family and friends.
