ANZCO Foods Update - April 2023
Posted on Monday, 17 April 2023
Next week, registrations will open for our second women’s conference, “Being Bold for Change 2023”.
Following the success of our first Being Bold for Change conference in 2018, we intended to hold a conference for women every couple of years, however Covid delayed our intentions!
Now that restrictions have eased, we’re looking forward to bringing you Being Bold for Change 2023 – a conference to enable women in the farming sector to face the future with confidence and provide them with information and tools to help deal with the ongoing challenges taking place in the industry.
As well as an opportunity to show our support for the sector and to celebrate the high-quality food the industry produces, the conference has a wonderful line-up of speakers covering a range of topics from technical farm information including breeding and genetics, soil science, finance, and succession planning, to an exciting interactive session on how you can understand yourself and others better. There will be a focus on mental health and resilience, innovation stories, and we have some celebrity guest speakers and a gala dinner you’ll be chomping at the bit to be a part of.
Our 2018 conference sold out in 48 hours so we’ve been compiling a VIP list for advanced notifications about the conference. Email us at ANZCO.Conferences@anzcofoods.com to get yourself on the VIP list for an early opportunity to register, or you can keep an eye on our ANZCO website and Facebook page for notification when registrations are live.
We’ve recently seen the first investment out of the Centre for Climate Change Action on Agricultural Emissions which is showing potential in reducing methane emissions.
ANZCO Foods is part of the Centre, which is a four-year industry and government collaboration to accelerate the development of tools and solutions to help farmers reduce agricultural emissions.
It’s early days but this first investment is a methane-inhibiting technology that reduces methane emissions from dairy and beef cattle by more than 70%. You can read more on this investment here.
We’ll keep you in the loop with developments with this technology and other Centre investments.
