FODDER FESTIVAL 2018

The one stop fodder conservation destination

If you are a fodder producer, a fodder end-user (i.e. dairy, beef or sheep farmer) or your business is reliant on fodder, then this is the event for you.

We are pleased to bring you the AFIA Fodder Festival 2018; a demonstration and interactive field day to connect fodder producers and end-users. The day will be a mix of paddock demonstrations and presentations at the Elmore Field Days site in Northern Victoria.

We recognise that at times that there is disconnect between the producers of fodder and the end-users of that fodder.  The transaction between these two parties should not be a win-lose or a lose-win but instead, a win-win for both and the best way to achieve that is to provide understanding and information and to do that effectively requires good communication and interaction. 

 

The AFIA Fodder Festival 2018 will provide the forum and the opportunity to facilitate change in this transaction.

 

FREE ENTRY and LUNCH plus a showbag for everyone who pre-registers
