Tech & Innovation Talks

Let’s Talk Tech, Carbon and Innovation

The NBN Tech & Innovation Talks program is a free series of tech, innovation, and carbon focused talks on the NBN Stage located in the Ken Coombe OAM Tech Yards and Innovation Hub.

Scheduled throughout the week, these free talks will introduce you to a number of exhibitors who will educate, entertain, and expose you to on-trend, new and futuristic concepts for the beef industry. 

Welcome back Martin Cuddihy – NBN Tech & Innovation Talks Master of Ceremonies

You may remember Martin from Beef2021 when he provided insight into all things tech on the Tech Talks Rabobank Stage. 

Martin has one foot in the beef industry and the other in professional communications. Together with his wife, Jayne, they manage Baryugal Station (Dawson Valley) for Trafalgar Pastoral Company. Prior to life on the land, Martin spent more than a decade working as a journalist for the ABC. This time included 3 years as a foreign correspondent. While he may have reported on global events around the world, Martin is just as happy to be at home with his family keeping an eye on the bullocks! 

The NBN Tech and Innovation talks program includes three styles of presentations:

  • Carbon Conversations
  • Lunch and Learn Sessions
  • Partner presentations

Carbon Conversations are daily one-hour sessions that will delve deep into the latest methods and trends in measuring, mitigating and sequestering carbon on beef cattle enterprises. The sessions will feature a different expert in each daily session and begin with the basics of how to start calculating emissions. The following days will canvass developments in methane inhibitors, reveal how large commercial ranches in the United States are addressing climate and environmental challenges, explain Australian Carbon Credit Units, and break down the critical differences between insetting and offsetting emissions.

The Lunch and Learn sessions will be presented by the exhibitors within the Ken Coombe OAM Tech Yards and Innovation Hub and will feature product launches and information on all things new and innovative for tech in the beef industry.

Beef2024 Partner Presentations will feature up to date presentations on research outcomes around emissions, artificial intelligence, environmental credentials, data – all designed for the beef producers to take home and apply in their business.
