Five more BeefUp events for Queensland producers

Beef Central, 04/07/2017

Beef producers across Queensland have the chance to tap into regionally-relevant research findings and practical tools to improve their business at five additional Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) BeefUp Days scheduled for this year.

Hosted by the regional committees of the North Australia Beef Research Council (NABRC) the popular events will also provide producers with the chance to provide feedback on what areas of research, development and adoption (RD&A) are most appropriate to them and directly contribute to how their levies are invested.

For Western Queensland beef producers, the next BeefUp Day will be held in Barcaldine Town Hall on Wednesday, 12 July.

MLA Managing Director, Richard Norton, will attend the event to provide an update on MLA’s activities, while other speakers will address issues including building multi-generational enterprises and the five golden rules to create a high performing agribusiness.

MLA BeefUp Day coordinator Barb Bishop will facilitate a producer consultation session to enable producers to have their say about RD&A priorities relevant to their region.

Beef producers throughout other regions of the state will have the opportunity to access similar regionally-relevant information and insights, and have input into setting RD&A priorities with BeefUp Days to be held at:

Warwick, 25 July

Nebo, 2 August

Beaudesert, 12 September

Karumba, 13 October.

The MLA BeefUp Day at Barcaldine begins at 9.30am with morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea and a barbecue dinner provided. Cost is $20 and registration is essential by 7 July. To register click here.
