BeefUp Forums provide an opportunity for northern Australian beef producers to learn something new, stay up-to-date with the latest on-farm research and technologies and meet others working in the red meat industry.

Held predominantly throughout Queensland, NT and WA, these forums introduce producers to the outcomes of MLA research and development projects and the next steps to drive profitability and productivity on-farm.

At BeefUp Forums, producers can:

  • hear about the latest red meat research, development and adoption programs with a whole-farm and value chain focus
  • interact with expert speakers, including leading producers, advisors and researchers
  • access tools and insights – tailored to the needs and interests of producers in the local area.

BeefUp Forums are an MLA initiative and are delivered by Barbara Bishop & Associates.
