GRASSFED beef producers have two more weeks to apply for the Australian Institute of Company Directors course, funded through Cattle Council of Australia and Meat & Livestock Australia.
The five-day AICD course is a comprehensive program focusing on areas of business management and skills development specific to cattle producers.
Previous course participant Geoff Birchnell, from Tamworth, NSW, said the same governance principles, regulatory environment and social expectations apply to all producers, where they a family farm or an agricultural corporate.
“Agriculture is cyclical in nature and inherently has a higher risk profile than most other industries, which requires a greater level of governance,” he said.
“The beef industry is also rapidly evolving and it is critical that we have skilled people to navigate the path forward. The AICD course is one way we can develop people’s skill”.
The course is administered by the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and participants will undertake assessment to achieve official recognition as a Graduate of the course.
Applications are open to all grassfed cattle producers who have a desire to provide leadership in the beef industry.
Applications close at midnight, 31 January 2018. For more information contact the Cattle Council Office on 02 6269 5600 or find out more information here.
