CENTRAL Queensland cattle producer, beef industry innovator and agricultural advocate Josie Angus will be the guest speaker at a special Rural Press Club of Queensland lunch and networking event in Brisbane next Thursday, October 20, to celebrate International Rural Women’s Day.
Over three decades Josie and her husband Blair have built their family cattle producing operation into a dynamic branded beef powerhouse, supplying premium home-grown product to more than 30 countries under their own stable of Signature Beef brand labels including Kimberley Red, Oino Gustus and Angus Pastoral Company.
Following several years of planning and two years of construction, they have also recently opened their own on-farm abattoir, the first greenfield processing plant to be built in Queensland for almost three decades.
A bold move to bring processing “back to the bush”, the 50,000 head state-of-the-art bespoke plant, complete with its own on-farm village providing permanent accommodation for 70 employees, completes the vertical integration of the Angus family’s own supply chain from paddock to plate, the latest step in an ongoing dedicated quest to produce the world’s best beef.
Josie Angus is also a vocal advocate for fellow cattle producers and the beef industry. In 2018, as the president of Queensland Food Future, she helped to launch a series of videos including the Quiet Farmer which reached over five million people.
Join the Rural Press Club of Queensland on Thursday, 20 October to both celebrate the International Day of Rural Women and to share Josie Angus’ story of family values, adding value and to discuss the issue she has helped bring to national attention.
