Goats are the stars at industry roadshow
A UNIQUE roadshow will make its way into town tomorrow and it is one for the discerning producers and savvy business people of rural Queensland.
Before it goes to any other state, Charleville locals will have the chance to learn about the goat industry from experts in the field.
MLA goat industry technical officer Geoff Niethe and MLA goat industry project manager Julie Petty will feature as faces of the roadshow.
They will also be joined by a panel of industry stakeholders including local producers, goat processor Western Meat Exporters, the Queensland Department of Agriculture and Fisheries.
“Providing goat meat producers with the latest best practice information to help boost on-farm productivity and profitability is vital for the industry to help grow supply and secure its future,” Ms Petty said.
“The Australian goat meat industry was worth over $257 million last year.”
