The string of rural-focused events starts with the National Farmers' Federation (NFF) Leaders' Summit and 40th birthday gala on Monday at Parliament House.

The week will then unfold with an intensive look at Valuing Agriculture's Natural Capital at the Australian Farm Institute's annual Roundtable and The Future of Animal Agriculture at the subsequent After Hours Forum at the National Gallery.

This will be followed by a celebration of our best primary producers at the Kondinin Group and ABC Rural Australian Farmer of the Year Awards on Wednesday, back at Parliament House, along with the CropLife Australia members forum and industry cocktail party at the Gallery.

Thursday caps off the week's events with the Australian Rural Leadership Foundation Annual Gala Dinner where Stan Grant will be the Keynote Speaker and Pip Courtney will be Master of Ceremonies at the spectacular National Arboretum.
