MLA’s popular BeefUp forum returns to the Kimberley

21 February 2024

On the 7-8 of March, Meat & Livestock Australia’s (MLA) popular BeefUp forum returns to the Kimberley, this time at Fitzroy Crossing.

The BeefUp forum, brought to the region by MLA, Western Australian Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development (DPIRD) and the Kimberley Pilbara Cattlemen's Association (KPCA) provides a chance for producers, advisors, researchers and other experts to come together to share information and ideas to support the continued growth of beef businesses throughout the Kimberley and northern WA.

Each program features a unique agenda, covering topics that are most relevant to local producers through presentations, demonstrations, and Q&A-style discussions.

According to MLA’s Program Manager - Adoption, Sally Leigo, this BeefUp forum has been specifically designed for producers in the Kimberley region.

“In conjunction with the producer-driven Kimberley Regional Beef Research Committee and Rangelands NRM, these BeefUp forums have been designed by producers in order to cover key topics for North-West Australian pastoral businesses,” Ms Leigo said.

“These include discussing seasonal strategies and production drivers, hearing the latest on emerging export markets in South-East Asia and practical demonstrations on livestock breeding and selection.”

Experts and producers from across Western Australia and northern Australia will share the latest R&D, programs and services for the red meat industry, and the event will provide plenty of opportunity for attendees and presenters to exchange information

The forum will take place at the Fitzroy Lodge and Rodeo Grounds from 12pm AWST on 7-8 March 2024.
