    Edwina Beveridge, pig farmer in NSW, will open the conference sharing her perspectives on the need for innovation in Australia’s livestock industries.  An innovator herself, Edwina will also share the innovation applied in their system, and her understanding of the needs of the consumer.  We sat down with Edwina and asked her to tell us a bit about herself, her enterprise and the innovative solutions implemented to increase efficiency and decrease costs.
