THE Australian livestock export industry’s major annual conference kicks off in Townsville today with 350 delegates from across the supply chain registered to attend the two day event.
Proceedings kicked off on Tuesday night with a networking function held by the Young Livestock Exporters’ Network which was formed earlier this year and has now added more than 80 members to its ranks (see pictures from last night’s function below).
The program for the LIVEXchange conference over the next two days includes multiple panel sessions with international speakers, including buyers of Australian livestock and meat products from several countries.
Topics to be discussed include updates on global food trends, market outlooks, the latest livestock vessel technology, the Livestock Global Assurance Program (LGAP), flood recovery in North Queensland, and updates on the ongoing disruptive impacts on protein markets caused by the spread of African Swine Fever throughout Asia.
