The Young Beef Producers Forum is an educational, networking event for young people in the beef industry, and is organised and hosted by the Future Farmers Network.

This year’s program revolves around the theme “Building Beef for the Future” and is designed to equip delegates with practical skills to assist in their own operations.

The 2012 Forum will be officially opened by Senator Barnaby Joyce who sees the Forum as a perfect opportunity to build the future of the agricultural sector.

“Given the demands on agriculture going forward, events such as the Young Beef Producers Forum are crucial in ensuring we have an engaged and educated next

Generation who can drive ongoing industry productivity and maintain Australia’s product integrity,” Senator Joyce said.
