Changes coming for farming industry in challenging times

A farming community says the industry needs to be looking 50 years down the line to get through potential changes to the sector

Regen limited says farmers need to have a 50-year plan in place to improve farmer confidence while compliance issues and the uncertainty around new water regulations remains front and centre.

Regen CEO Bridget Hawkins told Mike Hosking they need transformational change to keep up with changing farming conditions.

“It is a big ask but is needed. Climate change will make things very different in 10 years’ time.”
