Australia is fortunate to have a number of strong state and national rural women’s groups. Each is unique, though perhaps these differences aren’t immediately apparent to anyone on the sidelines. Rural women’s organisations (worldwide) include at least one of the following aspects. Some include all three: A strong emphasis on directly lobbying governments to improve […]

Twitter makes it clear how much people involved in agriculture have in common, all over the world. Most share similar values and interests and have the same sense of humour. Websites, blogs and social media now help innovations spread in leaps and bounds. Previously, any number of people would be simultaneously working on similar projects, […]
Rockhampton’s Beef Week is next scheduled for 4-9 May 2015. Today someone asked me why I attend. Good question! It is the biggest Australian event of it’s kind and has a special buzz about it; helped by the fact that it’s only held every 3 years, thus efficiently concentrating attendance and the money involved. Here’s […]
Beef Week is over for another 3 years. This year a record crowd attended of almost 85,000 people, over 5 days. Many Beef Australia visitors travelled from interstate and remote areas, and other countries. Though the tradefair keeps me flat out for the duration, it’s immensely enjoyable. I’m already looking forward to Beef Week in […]
Only a month to go until Rockhampton’s triennial Beef Week Exposition, running from 7th to the 12th of May, 2012. I’ll be there again this year, in the Walter Pearce Pavilion at tradefair stand number 45. This year, not far from the restaurant – so I’ll be able to smell food, even though I won’t […]
Just back from attending the Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) inaugural ‘social media conversations’ workshop in Charters Towers. A very useful and enjoyable two days – with enough new information to make the head spin (next step is to put the new stuff into practice), great company and interesting discussion. In fact, I’d love to […]
Series 2 of ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’ returned on Channel Ten last night with yet another episode featuring a social occasion – this time, a trip to the Brunette (ABC) Races. Held on Brunette Downs (Barkly Tableland, NT) twice a year but with the largest gathering held in June, this Keeping up with the Joneses […]
As is apparently the case in all but the very worst drought years, it rained at Agquip last week – in fact there was also a bit of hail on the last day. But like most agricultural field days, rain has a beneficial affect on visitation and sales. Only an absolute deluge like that received at Agquip 2010, causes running headaches […]
Equitana Australia has been held nearly every year since it began in Victoria in 1999. It was held in Melbourne in 2001, 2003, 2005, 2008 and 2010; and in Brisbane in 2002. (2007 Equitana Melbourne was cancelled due to the Equine Influenza outbreak.) It has just been announced that Equitana will be held in Sydney for the […]
