Livestock Advisor Updates

Livestock Advisor Updates are regionally relevant, one-day technical workshops held in northern, southern and western Australia. The workshops provide opportunities for livestock advisors, leading producers and professional extension consultants to:

  • learn about the latest red meat R&D
  • gain skills, tools and knowledge to increase their offering to clients
  • network with their peers.


Given the diversity of the Australian livestock industry and the research underway to support producers, annual events are held in:

  • Northern Australia – this year’s northern event will be held in Brisbane on 19 August 2019
  • Southern Australia – this year’s southern event will be held in Sydney on 21 August 2019
  • Western Australia - this year’s western event will be held in Perth on 30 October 2019

Livestock Advisor Updates working group

The Livestock Advisor Updates project team work closely with a technical working group to deliver the events that address key issues and opportunities for producers. They also guide the format, location and programs, and assist in promoting the event to their industry networks.

Each regional event has a separate group to ensure the content is regionally relevant and identifies the right speakers.

Members of the working group were selected through an independent expression of interest process that considered their past experience, professional capacity and work in similar capacity.

If you would like to be considered for future positions on a working group, or provide feedback to the regional team for future content or speakers, please email the contacts below.
