Have you listened to the EP Ag Chats podcast?

| Posted in

Eyre Peninsula farmers are encouraged to tune in this seeding as AIR EP’s podcast, EP Ag Chats, covers ‘the good bits, the bad bits, and everything in between’.

The six-episode podcast features conversations between farmers from all over the EP, with young farmers interviewing their more experienced counterparts.

From technology and machinery to gross margins and what to ask the accountant, no question is off limits, giving the next generation of farmers the opportunity to ask questions.

The podcast concept was developed through a series of workshops with young farmers across the Eyre Peninsula. AIR EP Regional Agricultural Landcare Facilitator Amy Wright says the workshops identified ways to strengthen connections between farmers and expand knowledge in the ag sector.

“All of the young farmers involved were open to new ideas in farming, but with decreased opportunities for face-to-face interactions, we had to look at strategies for engagement here on the EP and this is where the idea of the podcast was formed” Ms Wright said.

The most common piece of advice throughout the 6 part series; don’t be afraid to ask questions.

“We’ve helped give young EP farmers a voice, which will help move themselves and their business forward,” Ms Wright said.

The podcast was funded by the Australian Government’s Future Drought Fund: Regional Drought Resilience Planning Program via the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal (FRRR) and delivered in conjunction with Amanda Scott, Southern Cross University.
