Join the best minds in the beef industry

Take inspiration from the best minds in the beef industry – both nationally and internationally – at the Beef Australia 2012 four-day seminar program.

The education program at Beef Australia 2012 included speakers who set to challenge producers to extend their knowledge and improve their productivity.

Seminars were held from 8.30 to 5pm each day concurrently at two venues the Bos Taurus and Bos Indicus rooms within the James Lawrence Pavilion, while a 'Technology Room' within the same pavilion featured free recurring daily presentations.

Morning sessions featured a live video cross via Skype from an international expert in the fields of overseas markets and marketing. Event sponsors also hosted sessions covering everything from the role of women in business, to succession planning through to animal nutrition and performance benchmarking. 

While all sessions were open to all members of the public, a number of sessions were particularly suited to cattle producers aged 18-35. These are marked below with the Beef Australia 2012 Stockman.
