The Weekly Grill

S2 Ep 4: Veteran red meat industry leader, David Crombie

Beef Central’s ever popular podcast series, The Weekly Grill, has returned from its summer recess with today’s fourth episode of a new series.

Host Kerry Lonergan this week turns up the heat on veteran red meat industry leader David Crombie.

After forging his career as a director of Gunn Rural Management (GRM) and live exporter Austrex, Mr Crombie later became the chairman of the steering committee that moulded the formation of  the Meat Standards Australia tenderness guarantee scheme, sat as chairman of Meat & Livestock Australia for six years, and served terms as president of the National Farmers Federation. In all capacities, he acted as a high profile industry leader, prepared to engage with grassroots producers across the length and breadth of the country.

Today he spends his time on his small cattle property near Warwick, and is a passionate participant in carcase competitions.
