Red Meat Updates is Tasmania’s premier agricultural industry event. The annual conference is for anyone involved in the red meat industry, particularly Tasmanian sheep and cattle producers. Red Meat Updates was developed to provide information, inspiration and foster networking within the Tasmanian red meat industry. The program is designed by a producer-led working group, which ensures the event is relevant and valuable to attendees.
Red Meat Updates was first held in 2013 and has continued to grow ever since. The event consistently attracts over 350 people, with tickets selling out well in advance.
In 2019, 75% of conference attendees were sheep and cattle producers, with many of these producers also running cropping enterprises. Red Meat Updates covers a range of production, business and supply chain topics under the themes of beef, sheep, dryland pasture and irrigated pasture. It features leading producers on the program and provides a forum for sharing MLA RDE&A outcomes and activities with industry. It inspires producers to continue to improve what they do. In 2020 the event had the support of 27 confirmed sponsors, many of whom have supported the event since its inception.
