Featuring discussion with the bank's agricultural land values specialist, Wes Lefroy, it was an opportunity for farmers to hear where farmland prices are expected to head in the next five years and strategies for expanding in the current high price environment.

With farmers travelling from across the region, the event also included participants from Rabobank's first Mini Masterclass, a three-day workshop focused on optimising business growth opportunities.

A practical program, it included sessions with farm management consultant John Francis as well as farm tours to nearby beef, grain, cotton, aquaculture, pork and feedlot operations.

The breakfast event also marked the second stop for the bank's RaboTruck after its 12-month hiatus during Covid, as it tours around regional Australia as a means of sharing food and agri sector knowledge.
