Access to information about new technology, crop varieties and farming techniques is another key.  

As a producer I’ve got to be at the cutting edge of advances in farming and that means having access to up-to-date research and data which is relevant to our region. 

The MFMG really is playing a lone hand in that regard.

Sam Croser

Broadacre & Irrigation, Millicent area

There is a great professional networking and social aspect to the group, talking to other farmers and learning about their experiences is always so insightful. MFMG gives you incredible access to some of the most switched-on farmers in our region. 

It’s just so valuable for us to see new varieties grown in trial plots right here in our backyard, and to discuss them with other local farmers.

Tara Hindson

Livestock & Cropping, Neuarpurr area

When we’re looking at something new and considering a change to the way we do things, MFMG’s independent research and extension work helps us make a more informed decision.

The specialised information members have access to really enhances the ongoing learning experience we have as farmers and I believe that dramatically increases our ability to improve our farm businesses.
