Participation in online sales of livestock and other rural commodities is growing rapidly.

AuctionsPlus today hosts around 10 auctions per week, and sells more than 340,000 cattle and 2.2 million sheep per year.

AuctionsPlus chief executive officer Anna Speer will provide insights into the online selling revolution when she delivers the 2016 Malcolm McCosker Memorial Address at this year’s Royal Queensland Show Ekka Breakfast, hosted by the Rural Press Club of Queensland.

Anna will discuss why producers are embracing this change, the new frontiers of relationship and trust and will look at what is over the horizon for the Australian livestock marketing industry.

A science and education uni graduate, Anna started her career as a jillaroo with the Consolidated Pastoral Company, and has since worked in various roles across the red meat and livestock supply chain in Australia and overseas.

The breakfast will be held at 7am on Thursday, 4 August 2016, at the Royal International Convention Centre, RNA Showgrounds, Brisbane.

The cost per ticket is $80 per person or $750 for a table of ten (10) for members, or $90 per person or $850 for a table of ten (10) for non-members.

The Rural Press Club breakfast will also be featuring Foodbank Queensland and the vital work it performs in supplying charities in Brisbane and regional Queensland, and how livestock producers can lend a helping hand.

Immediately following the RPC Breakfast will be the start of the 2016 Royal Queensland Show stud beef cattle judging in the Centre Ring.
