Are you a friend of Queensland ag?

Pledge to help us bring ag issues to the city.

Introduction

Does future food security matter? Or improving water quality to improve the health of the reef? How about building drought resilience, or solving a wild dog plague? Help us to close the divide and bring ag issues to the city. See some of the issues that matter to regional Queensland on our YouTube channel With every pledge over $30 you will be kept up to date with a one-year subscription (six editions) to AgForce Envoy magazine. See the most recent issue here.

Background

AgForce's strength lies in our people and a united voice that is grounded on the grassroots of the industry. Today, we represent broadacre producers across the beef, sheep and wool and grains industries, as well as agribusiness, agriculture support and small agricultural enterprises. We help provide a voice for the farmers and graziers who create the first link in a supply chain which generates billions of dollars in production, employment and economic growth.

How the funds will be used

Funds will be used to deliver information campaigns in Brisbane, Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast to help provide all Queenslanders with an understanding of rural issues. These messages will be shown on billboards in the city.

Something in return

If you pledge to become a #FriendofAg, we want you to be kept up to date also. Every pledge over $30 be kept up to date with a one-year subscription (six editions) to AgForce Envoy magazine.
