A GRAINS Research and Development Corporation (GRDC) Farm Business Update will be held in Yuna on Thursday, February 8.
Farm Business Updates provide a unique forum for growers and advisers to learn from – and network with – leading industry professionals and the Yuna event will be held at the town’s community centre.
