World Angus forum heading to Brisbane

Beef Central, 30/08/2023

AFTER being cancelled in 2021 due to COVID, the World Angus Forum is coming to Brisbane on 7-8 May 2025.

Commercial and stud cattle breeders, supply chain managers and other Angus stakeholders from every corner of the globe are invited to meet in Australia for the event.

With a theme of ‘Beef for a Better Planet’, Angus Australia will host a global celebration of the breed and an insight into the latest technology, genetics and innovation that’s taking place.

The event will showcase the highest quality beef run sustainably in some of the harshest environments and explore the concepts and challenges of the Australian Beef Industry’s quest for Carbon Neutral 2030.

“On behalf of the organising committee, it is our great pleasure to invite stakeholders to attend World Angus Forum 2025,” Angus Australia chief executive officer Scott Wright said.

“The Forum will provide a unique opportunity for Angus breeders and industry professionals to come together to learn from one another and to share their passion for this iconic breed. It will also play an important role in promoting the Angus breed globally and in advancing the knowledge and understanding of cattle breeding and management.”

“Preparations are well under way to deliver an educational and informative event that will bring together leading experts and advocates in a broad range of fields, as well as the opportunity to experience Australia with its unique wildlife and environment,” Mr Wright said

“After the success of the World Angus Forum in Australia in 1997, Angus Australia is honoured to again be hosting the event in 2025,” he said.

An exciting pre-conference program is being developed, including an initial reception on the Harbour in Sydney, followed by a tour with farm visits and tourist destinations on the itinerary.

As they head north, tour delegates will land in Tamworth for what is anticipated to be the largest gathering of Angus cattle in Australia, as Angus Australia hosts a two-day Breed Expo at the Australian Equine and Livestock Events Centre. This leg will also include the World Angus Forum Youth Competition.

From Tamworth the tour will continue north and finish up in Brisbane for the official two-day World Angus Forum event, where speakers who are experts in their field will be invited to present at the Brisbane Convention Centre.

“Come and see the finest genetics grown in the harshest environments and how we do it. Come and see the harbour, the reef, the rock,” said Angus Australia president and board chair Erica Halliday.

“But more importantly, our stud and commercial industry, the Australian beef industry, which aims to be carbon neutral by 2030. Come and see how we think we can do it and why we think that beef can be part of the solution.”
