King Island an apt name
KING Island is a fitting name for such a beautiful, highly-productive place.
Ag in the Asian Century
WHEN it comes to China and Australian agriculture, there are three types of people.
Branding the mark of modern farming
INDUSTRY players are jostling to align the True Aussie brand with a business case that will be digitally-enabled, owned by farmers and accessible to everyone.
Bites of Beef 2015
THERE were a few cuts to Beef 2015, so Sam Trethewey decided to slice his inaugural visit into bite-sized chunks.
Chinese puzzle needs unified effort
OUR reputation precedes us in the Chinese market, but it’s not enough to think we can still trade solely off that reputation.
Fact-free zone for Meat Free Week
LAST week it was National Agriculture week in the United States, this week it’s Meat Free Week in Australia. We have a problem.
Battling the BJD debacle
QDAFF have bitten off more than they could chew by agreeing to a national policy to eradicate BJD. Now they’re choking on it.
Political drought a systemic failure
ABBOTT isn’t the problem. Newman isn’t either. In fact the Gillard Rudd circus wasn’t then and whatever hollow “leader” the system dishes up next won’t be either.
Managing collateral damage
FARMERS are where we are today because of the choices we’ve made. Decisions that justify taking on debt are ‘ballsy’ to say the least.
Beefing up youth in ag

The (ag) kids are alright
YOUTH in agriculture: do we even have a problem? No, we don't, says SAM TRETHEWEY.

WHAT comes first, chicken or the egg? According to producers and consumers, the chicken always comes first, but the values that put the chicken first differ.
Having a crack at macas
VIDEO: THE Aussie macadamia is often known as the “king of nuts” - and one of the bigger jewels in this crown is Pacific Farms.
New tricks for old dogs
WE'RE in a transition where the culture and ideas of retirement are not evolving at the rate of our increased life expectancy, and a healthier one at that.
Why it pays to have imagination
WITH minds freshly conditioned and full of financial fog, some survivors of our moth-eaten education system have gone back to the family farm.
Sourcing the sauce
AS perceptions grow around a ‘disconnect’ between consumers and their food's origin, so do the number of venues around Australia delivering experiences for customers very close to the farmgate.
Thinking outside the product
THE times are changing in agriculture and our farming practices have to keep up if we're to successfully adapt our businesses.
Pulped fiction hurts farmers
I FIND it sad when people make decisions about what to eat or not to eat based on skewed information about agricultural production.
Cottoning on to top crop
LIKE food, cotton is something of a constant and a fibre I've probably taken for granted, until now.

The cattle industry would not exist but for foreign investment.
Not only are most levy payers never consulted, nobody even knows who most of them are.

China has followed through with flagged plans to resume importing United States beef, lifting a ban that has existed since mad cow disease was found in the States in 2003.
Indonesia has relaxed its trade restrictions on secondary beef cuts, re-opening a market that was worth $42 million to Australian exporters two years ago.
The recent rainfall will lead to a change in the micron profile of the Australian wool clip next spring, while boosting production volume and lamb marking rates.
While the favourable season is spurring lamb prices and providing more marketing options for producers, livestock agents are concerned rates are reaching unsustainable levels.
There will be more cases of sclerotinia in canola in areas that do not traditionally have problems with the disease due to the wet spring.
