By Country News

Sheep Producers Australia will host its inaugural Leadersheep Forum ahead of LambEx 2018 in Perth, designed to connect current and emerging sheep industry leaders prior to the industry’s flagship event.

The Leadersheep Forum will be held on August 5 and features international LambEx guests Charlie Arnot from the United States Centre for Food Integrity and Twitter’s most famous farmer James Rebanks, better known as ‘The Shepherd’.

Sheep Producers Australia president Allan Piggott said the Leadersheep Forum would be the place to be to interact and exchange ideas with other industry and emerging leaders.

‘‘It’s a great opportunity to learn more about the sheep industry, network, laugh, be challenged and see how your future leadership journey may unfold,’’ he said.

‘‘The forum will also officially launch the Sheep Producers Australia Leadersheep Network and outline the range of opportunities and professional development on offer.’’

Mr Piggott said SPA believed developing the industry’s future leaders was important for continued sound policy development and strategic planning to ensure a strong united voice for producers.
