We will also be co-hosting a panel discussion - The future of farming resilience – clearing the air at farmers question hour.

Discussion Topic

Farming and resilience are two words we are commonly hearing in the same sentence but what does it really mean for the average farmer. Now more than ever having resilience when working in the sector is key, many will argue the cliff edge rapidly is approaching and the fight for survival and profitability has never been more real.

We will start our session taking a look into some valuable sector data collected by Brown&CoJHWalter when speaking with clients, share some of the trends that will hopefully shed some light into the direction for our cherished sector.

Charlie Bryant will chair this lively topical discussion where you will be able to question the panel and hear from fellow delegates on the topic of resilience and farming and we will explore how these are so commonly intertwined.
