A former Wallabies captain is bound for Dubbo in February to speak at the inaugural Young Farmer Business Program Conference.
Stirling Mortlock AM is on a line-up that also includes Mark Bouris, star of television shows The Mentor and The Apprentice Australia.
The speakers were announced as the NSW Department of Primary Industries encouraged young farmers and fishers to book their spot.
The conference on February 7 will include a full day of expert speakers and an evening networking event, with an optional farm and business tour the day before the conference.
Young Farmer Business Program team leader Alex Hicks said the conference would provide greater access to the skills and knowledge required to enable the next generation of primary producers to be successful.
"Participants will have an opportunity to learn critical business, communication and planning skills while being inspired and motivated by speakers and the passion of other young people," Ms Hicks said.
"We've lined up an exciting array of speakers for the event, including the headline presentation from business magnate Mark Bouris, star of television shows The Mentor and The Apprentice Australia.
"Other speakers include former Wallabies captain Stirling Mortlock AM, and best-selling author Chris Helder.
"There will also be a wide range of trade exhibitors on hand to answer questions, a panel session with young farmers sharing their stories and insights, and an opportunity to network and share experiences with about 200 other participants."
An early bird discount is available, with tickets for the conference and evening networking event only costing $99 instead of the $149 full price.
The optional Orana region farm and business tours on February 6 will cost an additional $49.
Places are limited so the department is urging people to get on board and register their interest early.
