Northern Territory producers, cattle industry representatives and agribusiness owners are being advised to make space in their calendars for the Victoria River Research Station (VRRS) field day and Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) BeefUp Forum next month.
The event will be held on Tuesday, 26 July and Wednesday, 27 July at the VRRS site, (also known as Kidman Springs) which occupies 31,400 hectares in the heart of the Victoria River district.
Held in conjunction with the departments’ field day, the MLA’s BeefUp Forum is a great event to network with industry while hearing the latest research on topics such as biosecurity and new animal disease threat assessment, calf loss, live export and the carbon industry.
The integration of the Meat and Livestock Australia BeefUp forum and the VRRS Field Day provides northern Australian beef producers with an opportunity to hear from and interact with expert speakers and proactively examine developing issues and opportunities within the industry, with sessions including:
• Interactive Q&A panels on carbon, live export & pasture management
• Research updates
• MLA market update
• Paddock tour
• Networking drinks & dinner
