Bye Bye 2020
While 2020 has been a tumultuous year for many in society, it has been generally a good year in agriculture and livestock in particular. We have seen on the upside:

As we leave 2020, we can only reflect on how well we responded to this year’s challenges and successes. It may be worth asking a few simple questions.
Hello 2021 and beyond
2020 was a pretty bad year for many people, so the question is – can next year be any worse? 2021 confronts us all with a whole new set of circumstances, some of which we have not experienced in our lifetime.
And I am an optimist!!!
On the other hand, a lot is happening, which will positively impact agriculture within the next two years.
Therefore, the issue is – “how do we take opportunities with the positive aspects while managing the risks facing us all?”.
Here are some things to consider.
While some of the global trends may seem overwhelming, the right thing to do is to get our own house in order, to be self-reliant and understand that Australia is the safest country in the world to live in. And, within Australia, rural and regional are the safest locations, and agriculture is the safest industry to be in. We can argue about what energy sources we should use, but we can’t argue with the need to eat.
We at RCS wish you and your families a wonderful festive season and all the moisture you need in 2021.
