Beyond the Bale : March 2014
45 ON-FARM Australian woolgrowers and the Australian sheep and lamb industry are invited to attend LambEx 2014, a two day conference being held in July at the Adelaide Showground, plus a one-day pre-conference farm tour. The event will feature outstanding speakers, an extensive trade exhibition, quality entertainment and an opportunity to communicate with all sectors of the lamb supply chain. Following on from the launch of the inaugural LambEx in Perth in 2010 and the second running of the event in Bendigo in 2012, the industry will once again gather together producers, processors, researchers, wholesalers, exporters and key service providers, to celebrate all things lamb. "After attending LambEx 2012, the thought-provoking information presented challenged us to make changes in our business," says woolgrower Jane Kellock from Farrell Flat in South Australia, who is on the organising committee for LambEx 2014. "I felt it was essential that all South Australian producers attend and they will have the opportunity in 2014." The enthusiasm is shared by fellow LambEx committee member and woolgrower Tom Ashby from Gulnare in South Australia: "The event is a unique opportunity for the sheep and wool industry in general to come together to showcase new technology and markets. It is a pleasure to be part of the initiative." By being involved in LambEx, AWI has the opportunity to promote the role of Merinos within lamb enterprises and influence sheep producers who might not normally associate with Merino or wool enterprises. It is also important for lamb producers to see the value of Merinos contributing to the rebuilding of the national flock. AWI is sponsoring the Grandslamb dinner on the Thursday evening. LambEx is being held on Thursday 10 and Friday 11 July at the Adelaide Showground, with a Mt Lofty NRM pre-conference farm tour being held on Wednesday 9 July. The event's major sponsors are the South Australia Sheep Advisory Group, MLA, Primary Industries and Regions SA, JBS FAST FACTS l Woolgrowers and sheep producers are invited to the two day LambEx sheep and lamb industry event in Adelaide at the beginning of July. l As well as an opportunity to hear outstanding speakers, including researchers and farmers of note, there is also an extensive trade exhibition. lAWI is involved in the event to promote the role of Merinos within lamb enterprises.
