CONSERVATION FARMERS INC

Conservation Farmers Inc. is a not-for-profit grower member Association established almost 40 years ago. It has approximately 250 active members, 85% of whom are farmers, with 15% information and service providers.

Members are based in northern NSW and southern Qld primarily in the regions of the Fitzroy, Maranoa Balonne, Condamine, Border Rivers, Gwydir and the Namoi.

The primary focus of the member base is the broad acre production of summer and winter cereals, legumes, oil seeds and cotton. Conservations Farmers Inc. supports our member base through facilitating the extension of research and the review of new products, services and systems.

There are two critical components to engaging farmer members;

  1. Information forums and field days. The field days are held at various locations across the northern cropping belt each year.  The field days traditionally attract between 20 and 100 attendees, primarily farmers who are keen to learn from each other.
  2. Conservation Farmers Quarterly Newsletter.  The publication is distributed in March, June, September and December. It is segmented so farmers can easily find stories of most interest to them.

Most importantly Conservation Farmers Inc. is a farmer’s network and our focus is on telling the farmers stories and getting producers together to learn from each other.
