3.00PM – 4.00PM (AEDT), Wed 2 March

This session will look at how, for some products, higher animal welfare, carbon neutrality and certain production inputs (or their absence) are tied to ideas of quality. Such products can earn a price premium. However, over time, societal expectations change. Minimum requirements can be driven not only by consumers, but by those completely removed from the supply chain.

With livestock prices breaking records through 2020-21 and strong prices for livestock commodities forecast to continue, how do producers position themselves to maintain social license over the coming decades?

Confirmed speakers include:

· Jonathan Wong from ABARES, who will set the scene with an overview of the livestock industry;

· Angus Gidley-Baird from Rabobank, and

· Dr Holly Ludeman from The Livestock Collective, who will provide a live export case study and discuss Australian community acceptance driving changes in trade.


Dairy – the future of milk pricing and marketing
3.00PM – 4.00PM (AEDT), Friday 4 March

Hear from a line-up of expert speakers, including Scott Briggs from Bridgecape Commodities and Mick Keogh from the ACCC. This session will discuss the various aspects of milk pricing in Australia, including deregulation, price bidding wars, the Australian Milk Price Initiative and the ACCC’s inquiry, all of which have contributed to a significant transformation in Australia’s dairy industry. The Australian Milk Price

Initiative is positioning to be the next big transformation in this industry. Explore recent developments in milk pricing mechanisms and how it will affect the dairy industry in the future.

Here’s what previous delegates had to say…

"The conference was a refresher on a range of issues. Hearing an array of perspectives from a good choice of speakers, who were experts in their field."


"The format was excellent – providing both the opportunity to live-stream and revisit presentations is a must, and was well managed."


"I thought it was an excellent conference. I really liked the fact that I could join sessions as I needed across the week, from the comfort of my home office."
