Health & Wellbeing

Primex is working with Government, Support Groups and Organisations to bring together a range of health experts and organisations in a dedicated area of the Event. The objective is to provide visitors with the opportunity to receive health advice and a range of check-ups, including blood pressure checks, blood sugar level testing, hepatitis C testing, and skin cancer spot checks, among many others.

Those participating in the Health & Wellbeing Hub can also connect visitors with support networks across the Region for various health conditions.

This initiative is an affirmative action and proactive response to ensure that the North Coast and specifically Northern Rivers, as a vast area of villages and smaller rural communities, have the same health and wellbeing opportunities as those who live in larger urban areas.

We know it can be difficult to get people from our farming and rural communities in to see medical professionals and this is the primary objective of the Hub. Having a dedicated space for all participating organisations will be a significant step towards generating the support, information and resources that our communities need and provide check-ups they can get.


Business, Innovation & AgriTech

Primex Field Days has been dedicated to showcasing innovation for decades and are working in conjunction with strategic partners to create new & exciting phases of development and coverage through our Business & Innovation Hub.

Solutions that accelerate improved efficiencies in agriculture are driven in many ways by our farming and primary industries and this will only happen working alongside facilitators, enablers & investors.

We are dedicated to presenting the evolution of technology and with that, have identified the demand and importance of working alongside partners who can bring capacity of connectivity together.

Primex is one of the only agricultural field days, with 350 exhibitors, 1100 suppliers and targeted 25,000+ industry delegates and visitors, that’s committed to offering funding through its Innovation Scholarship, engaging with our NextGen in Education and Careers within innovation and offering a launchpad to support ideas that can revolutionise productivity on a global scale.

Education & Careers

Primex, in partnership with NSW Department of Education and NSW Local Land Services, is creating the Region’s leading Education & Careers Hub, showcasing the complete primary, secondary and tertiary education opportunities and pathways, highlighting future careers throughout Australian primary industries & the entire primary production supply-chain.

Education and Innovation are strategic pillars of Primex, with the hub providing an engaging centrepiece for schools, job seekers and attendees to learn and access the critical information about our world-class food and fibre production and the opportunities to join and remain in a strong and rewarding career.

Education providers at all levels will join primary industry groups, business and experts providing solutions-based information designed to attract and retain our educators, youth and next generation as immediate action is required for skilled and passionate advocates sharing the passion in a rewarding industry.

With new and exciting life-long careers available in food and fibre right across the supply chain, the Education & Careers Hub can sow the seed and identify the opportunities of the diversity of careers ranging from work on-farm, in science, technology, business management, innovation, logistics, animal welfare, marketing and research and development across our region, nation and globe.

Primex is the ideal location to profile large interactive presentations and career options including job training and vacancies, engagement through presentations and networking amongst educators, industry and employees, while targeting our School groups and programs.

Forestry & Timber Industry Collective

The Forestry & Timber Industry Collective represents a collaboration between Primex and key industry stakeholders including Koppers Wood Products, Hurford’s Sawmill, Sustainable Forest Management, Local Land Services, NE NSW Forestry and Timber NSW.

Like many other facets that make Primex Field Days such an important event, supporting primary industry through education and innovation is a pillar, and the Forestry & Timber Industry Collective will initiate the networking and trade presentations to establish the collaboration.

Engaging visitors will also be a critical factor in providing key learnings on one of our country’s great natural resources. Profiling important & practical value-adds in areas such as the use of bark tannin, through to insights into biofuels and timber products including utility poles. With timber part of our low carbon future as we head towards CN30, the Collective will include service providers proficient in supporting landowners from assessment of their land through to reforestation options.

The entire supply-chain is covered where you can see and be part of heavy machinery demonstrations, landcare with regenerative farming practices and tree planting programs, alongside practical outcomes for plantation forestry with integration of farms and trees for long-term benefits.

Linked to our Education and Careers Hub, employment and job opportunities and training in the Forestry and Timber Industries and processing will offer a range of potential opportunities into the future.
