Dress Code

The dress code is strictly formal, or optional black tie.

This means a suit or tuxedo, a cocktail dress or gown.


A bit of background, BCG currently operates five Young Farmer Network groups: Buloke, Quambatook, Loddon, West Wimmera, and Yarriambiack/Hindmarsh. We aim to bring forth events for young farmers, to provide with them educational opportunities and assist in furthering their knowledge in the industry, whilst providing a sense of community and a social outlet.

The Young Farmer Network Ball will operate as an annual event, alternating regions each year.

If you live outside of the existing five groups and aren’t affiliated with BCG, you can still come along and be involved! Our Young Farmer Network is inclusive and open to all. You don’t have to consider yourself young or a farmer to be involved, as it is simply aimed at the youngest active generation on farm with desire to progress their business, or those interested in the agricultural industry.

This is a free network that does not require membership, but you can still register your interest and stay up to date with upcoming events by contacting the office on (03) 5492 2787, or
