S2 Ep37: Downs lotfeeder David Brown, and BeefEX attendees

The Weekly Grill headed to the feedlot industry’s BeefEX conference in Brisbane last week, catching up with Darling Downs lotfeeder David Brown for an extended chat on the present challenges and opportunities in lotfeeding, plus a series of ‘vox pop’ responses from other lotfeeders attending the conference.

David, a trained veterinarian who owns and operates the West Talgai feedlot near Allora, represents the smaller end of Australian feedlot operators, basing his business around a long-term supermarket supply contract. The pair discuss current challenges including high feeder cattle and grain prices and how smaller-scale feedlots work, in an industry sector dominated by some giants.
