Beef Australia is the cattle industry’s national exhibition. It is held just once every three years in Rockhampton, Central Queensland, with the next event to be staged on May 4-9.

The expo is a platform for the development of all levels of industry, by growing export beef markets, educating producers in new practices, and engaging consumers about the great taste and benefits of beef.

“Producers attending this year’s event will have ample opportunity to improve their skills, network in a global context and expand their knowledge through these tours, our industry symposium and the daily seminar series,” he said.
