Sam Bailey speaks at dinner

Turfbreed Growers gathered at the Mantra Legends Hotel at Surfers Paradise in early September for their first-ever conference. Sam Bailey was guest speaker at their dinner on Monday night, September 3. He said it was interesting to meet the growers and learn about their industry, which is going well with plenty of demand for their turf. "What I didn't know about turf growing was how constant it is," said Sam. "Growers have to harvest turf every day, rain, hail or sunshine, so it's a bit like dairying in that sense." The MC at the dinner was comedian, author and speaker Marty Wilson. Sam said, "It was great to finally meet Marty in the flesh as I spoke to him on the phone years ago for one of his "What I wish I knew..." books."
