We are proud to partner with industry groups as a demonstration of our commitment to Australian agriculture.
Partnering with rural communities
At Rural Bank we believe in a bright future for agriculture, and are pleased to partner with industry groups who share this vision.
The National Centre for Farmer Health
The National Centre for Farmer Health (NCFH) is a partnership between Western District Health Service and Deakin University and is based in Hamilton, Western Victoria. The Centre encompasses university research, service delivery and education that provides national leadership in improving the health, wellbeing and safety of farm men and women, their families and rural communities across Australia.
Australian Association of Stud Merino Breeders
Highlighting the profitability of Merinos as the ultimate dual-purpose breed and encouraging producers to increase Merino breeding ewe numbers in their enterprise mix, the Breed More Merino Ewes campaign is the first national, industry-supported campaign of its type in the Merino industry. The campaign targets the whole supply chain, to ensure there is a critical mass of meat and wool supply that is integral to the industry.
WAFarmers represents the voice of farmers throughout Western Australia and is continually working towards a more viable, profitable and sustainable future for the agricultural industry. As part of this pursuit, WAFarmers develops corporate partnerships with companies who provide a service to WAFarmers members, which place money directly back into farmers pockets. Founded in 1912, WAFarmers boasts a membership of over 3,500 farmers throughout Western Australia and continues to work directly with farmers on issues related to their on-farm business.
