The Governor of NSW, Her Excellency Professor the Honourable Marie Bashir AC CVO today officially opened the new offices for FarmLink Research at the Temora Agricultural Innovation Centre.

Her Excellency Marie Bashir commemorated the office opening at the Temora Agricultural Innovation Centre with the planting of a Jacaranda tree outside of the offices.  Her Excellency was joined by Mayor of Temora Shire Council Mr Rick Firman, Deputy Mayor Mr Graham Sinclair and FarmLink Research Chairman Bernard Hart and Alex Goesch Chair of the Temora Ag Bureau.

FarmLink Research has been managing the Temora Agricultural Innovation Centre on behalf of Temora Shire Council for over two years.

Ms Cindy Cassidy, FarmLink Research CEO said partnering with Temora Shire Council to secure the future of the former Agricultural Research Station has allowed us to make a valuable contribution to agricultural research and education activities in the region.

“We are proud of the role we have been able to play in saving the station and reinvigorating agricultural innovation in NSW,” said Ms Cindy Cassidy, FarmLink Research CEO.

“Through management of the facility and the extension activities taking place on a regular basis we are providing farmers and the community with new practices and tools to achieve profitability, productivity and sustainability.”

“From a practical perspective consolidation of staff and resources at the Temora Agricultural Innovation Centre will ensure more efficient and productive operation of the commercial and trial functions at the Centre and within the FarmLink business,” Ms Cassidy said.

The Temora Agricultural Innovation Centre will hold its annual Open Day on Thursday 11th September, 2014.  This event is open to the public and showcases the research and activities that are taking place at the Centre.
