From farm to fork
Why attend Beef Australia 2018?
WITH a growing global population, over the next 30 years food production will have to increase by 50 per cent to satisfy the population. The biggest issue with this large demand is that it will have to come from the same amount, if not less, land mass. Australia produces world class quality beef and to continue to do this we need to have more people involved. Beef Australia 2018 gives you an opportunity to see what is on offer within the industry, to see that there is so much more to agriculture than driving tractors, riding horses and mustering cows. Beef Australia 2018 is a showcase of the industry in its entirety – from production to consumption. There are a number of ways that young people can get involved beyond attending the expo. The Next Generation Committee is very active at Beef Australia 2018, running a number of key functions. Aimed at 18-35-year-olds it provides education, shares best practises and increases motivation and networking opportunities for youth. The Graeme Acton Beef Connections program is another Beef Australia program interested students need to be on the lookout for in the future. This program, in its second year in 2018, seeks to develop the skills of young and enthusiastic members of the supply chain through training and personal development opportunities.
