Scholars to be guest speakers

West Wimmera Nuffield scholars Michael Craig and Jonathan Dyer will be guest speakers at events in Warracknabeal and Edenhope next month as they prepare for an international tour.

The pair will speak at ‘Building Resilience in Farming’ events at The Creekside Hotel in Warracknabeal on February 11 and Bennett’s Edenhope Bakery on February 13, organised by West Wimmera Shire Council.

Mr Craig, from Harrow, and Mr Dyer, Kaniva, plan to use data to gain business insight involving ‘supply chains’ as a their focus for the Nuffield global focus program in late February.

Mr Craig is general manager of mixed broadacre livestock and cropping business Tuloona Pastoral. He oversees direction and staff, pasture and crop management.

Jonathon Dyer is from a 2200-hectare family farming partnership specialising in broadacre grain production.

They will use the functions to discuss their journey so far, why they chose to pursue the Nuffield scholarship and their point of difference in farming.

Mr Craig will be focusing on whether additional value can be distributed through the supply chain to improve returns, particularly in the context of Australian climate variability and ability to adapt.
