Grain Buyer, Avigrain |
Dennis grew up at Narromine in central west of NSW with his family involved in mixed farming and rural merchandising. As the grain buyer for birdseed manufacturer Avigrain, Dennis became interested in climate change due it’s impact on the seasonal variability of grain supply. Post graduate study in Agribusiness and Grain Trading gave further impetus to considering risk management strategies focused on managing climatic risk. Dennis interacts daily with farmers across the Eastern Seaboard buying a wide range of commodities and is very concerned about the future of Australian agricultural enterprises in an increasingly volatile and unpredictable climate.
