THE National Ag Day Agribusiness Forum, held at Crown Perth last Thursday, celebrated an industry that is the backbone of Australia.

The conference, sponsored by Hancock Prospecting Pty Ltd, had a thought-provoking line-up of speakers including founding patron Gina Rinehart, Western Australia Governor Kim Beazley, Thomas Foods International managing director Darren Thomas and Spudshed owner and founder Tony Galati.

Ms Rinehart called for the cutting of government red tape and taxes for Australia's agricultural industry, to help lessen the burden on the sector after four years of drought.
