The Blueprint is designed to set the future direction for the farming sector, NFF president Jock Laurie said. ''We are now calling for your input into the Blueprint development. Hop on our website [www.nff.org.au/blue- print] and fill in the online survey, talk to one of the 24 NFF member organis- ations, or run your own Blueprint session within your community and tell us what you want to see for the future of Australian agriculture. ''Or come along to a Blueprint forum, hosted by the NFF and Westpac, in each state and territory between March and May,'' Mr Laurie said. 2037922-111209 Delivered 6am* weekly to wherever you are.
