Fu­tureBeef fund­ing for three years

The Western Star - - RURAL WEEKLY -

MIN­IS­TER for Agri­cul­tural In­dus­try De­vel­op­ment Mark Furner has wel­comed the $2.38 mil­lion three-year re­newal of Fu­tureBeef, a highly suc­cess­ful gov­ern­ment-in­dus­try beef ex­ten­sion part­ner­ship.

Fu­tureBeef is a part­ner­ship be­tween the Queens­land, North­ern Ter­ri­tory and West­ern Aus­tralian gov­ern­ments and MLA, which aims to im­prove the prof­itabil­ity and sus­tain­abil­ity of the north­ern beef in­dus­try.

“The north­ern beef in­dus­try is backed by world-lead­ing research and de­vel­op­ment con­ducted by the state gov­ern­ment and part­ner agen­cies,” Mr Furner said.

“Since its in­cep­tion in 2012, Fu­tureBeef has pro­vided pro­duc­ers with the link to the lat­est sci­en­tific dis­cov­er­ies and research cov­er­ing top­ics from ge­net­ics to graz­ing land man­age­ment through its web­site and in­no­va­tive eEx­ten­sion tech­nolo­gies.

“It is this ex­ten­sion ef­fort, and adop­tion by our beef en­ter­prises both large and small, that po­si­tions our beef prod­ucts as the choice of con­sumers here and over­seas.

Mr Furner said the new three-year agree­ment was a com­mit­ment to con­tinue to de­liver high-qual­ity, sus­tain­ably pro­duced prod­ucts to con­sumers across the globe.
