  • Farm working expenses below $3.50/kgMS.
  • What are the drivers behind these results?
  • Did changes made at LUDF this season put them at the top of the profitability comparison?
  • What further adjustments are these farms implementing next season? 

This will be an opportunity to discuss with LUDF farm manager Peter Hancox and the rest of the team how these results were achieved. It’s your opportunity to ask questions about what is going on at LUDF.
