Rabobank joined forces with mobile medical program Heart of Australia to host special knowledge sharing events at Cecil Plains and Moonie in the last week of April.
Local farmers from the region attended both events, where they participated in discussions on cotton and grain market outlooks, farm inputs, estate and family succession planning along with partaking in a health screening service.
Rabobank deputy regional manager for southern Queensland and northern New South Wales Andrew Walker said the bank was pleased to be able to support Heart of Australia and provide a comprehensive 'bio-psycho-social' assessment for the attendees at the special community events.
"These events provided a great opportunity for the local communities to come together, network, gain knowledge and also receive insights into early warning signs of physical / mental health risks and information on how to take corrective action," he said.
The program included presentations from Rabobank's senior commodities analyst, Cheryl Kalisch Gordon and general manager, Sustainability and Community, Marc Oostdijk. Tony Randall, from Murdoch Lawyers, also joined the presentation panel to address the importance of estate and succession planning
