Conversations about the things that matter

The Paddock to Reef Conversations Series brings together stakeholders across the grazing and sugarcane industries in the Burdekin region to talk about issues that matter to them.

The aim is to explore issues and topics about the Paddock to Reef Integrated Monitoring, Modelling and Reporting Program (Paddock to Reef program). This includes highlighting what is important information farmers need to know, to debunk myths, and to answer your questions.

Our Top Rail Forums, held in Charters Towers in June, was part of the Conversations Series. We brought together a wide range of guests speakers to inform and inspire graziers on a wide range of topics. They included:

Alastair Rayner, Principal of RaynerAg.

Jane and Jordan Moore, Amelia Downs Station.

Frank Finger, grazier, winner ABC Muster Dogs.

Shanna Whan, Australian of the year Local Hero, Sober in the Country founder.

Eiren Smith, Dreghorn Station grazier and chair of the NQ Beef Research Committee.
