PREDICTING the future fortunes of agricultural commodities is no easy task, but that’s exactly what Stock Journal has asked some of SA agriculture’s movers and shakers to do.
We’ve put together a series of panel discussions delving into the performance of major commodities, and tackling often overlooked issues such as succession planning and business management.
Our six-part Farm Forum series will feature on the Stock Journal website from 7:30pm on Thursday each week throughout August and into September.
Tonight, in the second episode of the series, Stock Journal editor Jacinta Rose tackles business management with Stock Journal columnist and agribusiness consultant Ken Solly and Rural Business Support farm business advisor John Christensen.
Last week, the first episode focused on the beef cattle industry, with ANZ state agribusiness manager Steve Radeski, Livestock SA board member Penny Schulz and Elders northern cattle co-ordinator Bruce Cameron quizzed by Stock Journal livestock editor Catherine Miller.
We hope these videos generates discussion beyond the industry experts taking part in each panel.
We want to know if you agree or disagree with their summations or predictions for your sector and, as always, value your feedback.
Thanks for watching.
