Listen to James Walker talk about this week's CEO business summit in Longreach.

QUEENSLAND grazier James Walker is hoping some of ag's best thinkers in business can help the industry identify new solutions to the age-old problem of drought.

Movers and shakers from a broad spectrum of ag and food-related businesses will descend on Longreach today for the CEO Business Summit.

Their goal will be to find ways to boost the bottom line of a fictional beef operation, Kidworth Station, suffering from the impacts of drought.

Watch Professor Roger Stone's talk on climate and the outlook for 2015 from the CEO Business Summit here.

Not much thinking needed James. It isn't complicated. The solution is that in good years you should invest surplus income in measures which reduce the impact of bad years. e.g fodder conservation, fencing, water distribution &c. Now, I think you would be aware that the problem has been and is lack of surplus income in good seasons. The way to fix that is to rocket the dopes at the NFF office off to Mars or somewhere, and demand that the government recant the policy they call Unilateral Trade reform. Ag MUST have some defence against market corruption.
