About

What are MeatUp forums?
MeatUp forums give you a chance to catch up with other producers and industry experts to hear the latest in red meat R&D. They are one day events held throughout southern Australia, developed by regional producer working groups in collaboration with MeatUp coordinators and MLA. The program is purposely designed for red meat producers in each region, covering a range of topics and ideas.

Why should I attend MeatUp?
• Hear about the latest locally relevant on-farm R&D
• Hear from and network with leading producers
• Gain insights into tools and programs to improve your business
• Increase your productivity and profitability

There is no cost to red meat levy payers for events to 30 June 2021, due to the Accelerated Adoption initiative.

  • business overview and history
  • succession
  • importance of people management
  • use of technology in a rangeland business
  • breeding objectives
  • capital investments (fencing, water, feedlots)
  • investing in geographical diverse agriculture regions.
