Central West Farming Systems

Central West Farming Systems (CWFS) is an independent, not-for-profit, farmer driven organisation. We operate in an area covering 14 million hectares in the lower rainfall, mixed farming areas of Central West NSW (350-500mm rainfall).

Formed in 1998, the group now boasts over 300 members made up primarily of farmers but also private and public sector advisers, researchers and agribusiness. CWFS is based centrally at Condobolin but also operates 11 regional sites within a 250km radius of Condobolin.
