We are excited for all inspiring and motivated young farmers and fishers to attend the second Young Farmer Business Program Conference, kicking off on Thursday 27 & Friday 28 May 2021 at Dubbo Regional Theatre & Convention Centre. 

Why Attend?

If you’re 18 to 35 and have a dream of being involved in your own farming or fishing business, the Young Farmers’ Business Program Conference is an event you cannot afford to miss.  Learn more about the drivers of successful primary production businesses, the support services available, new innovative ways to improve, communicate through succession, and plan for or within your farming or fishing business. Hear from experts, as well as from people who have made the successful journey as young entrants to the industry. 

For Young Farmers & Fishers from across NSW
