Program for Beef Central’s free carbon and cattle market seminar at Primex

Beef Central, 08/11/2022

 

IF you’re visiting the Norco Primex Field Days near Casino this week you will have a unique opportunity to hear direct from the experts on key issues relating to ag carbon and the cattle market.

Beef Central is hosting a free seminar program from 9am to 12:30pm at Primex this Friday, November 11.

The first seminar session will update producers on key carbon farming developments of relevance to their own operations, whether they are well down the path of entering into carbon projects or simply seeking an understanding of where to start.

The second session will provide an update from three market experts on the current state of play in the cattle market and opportunities ahead.

Participants will also have the opportunity while sitting in the audience to answer a range of multiple choice cattle trivia quiz questions via their smartphones, with some great prizes on offer including a Dectomax V pack from Zoetis Australia, a Pasture Principles course from Meat & Livestock Australia, and Beef Central’s Cattle Baron and The Great Aussie Cattle Quiz board games.
