04 November 2016

Producers from right across Australia will be able to tune in to hear the latest industry insights at the upcoming Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) 2016 Red Meat Industry Forum and AGM, regardless of where they are,

The proceedings in Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills on Thursday, 10 November are set to be live streamed and available to view through the MLA website – allowing producers who are unable to attend to hear from MLA and industry representatives about the latest marketing and R&D priorities and what the future holds.

The theme for this year’s program is Towards 2020 and beyond – Fostering prosperity in the red meat industry and will have a specific focus on the future, as well as the current state of the red meat and livestock industry – and the role MLA is playing in building producer profitability, sustainability and global competitiveness.

As well as the formal AGM proceedings, the day’s program features a number of forums which will provide an opportunity to hear from senior industry and MLA leaders and will feature an open Q&A component.

The Red Meat Advisory Council (RMAC) will host a session featuring an industry update from RMAC Chair Don Mackay, followed by a moderated panel session for an engaging discussion on industry issues. The second session will include key updates from MLA senior leaders followed by an open Q&A.

The forums will be followed by MLA’s AGM which will include MLA Chair Michele Allan reporting on the company’s performance and governance for the last year. MLA Managing Director Richard Norton will present MLA’s vision for the industry to 2020 and beyond.

MLA members are encouraged to ask questions and make comments about MLA’s operations, its audited financial report and the performance of the Board and senior management.
