THE an­nual Young Beef Pro­duc­ers Fo­rum was held in Roma last week.

There were 265 young peo­ple be­tween the ages of 18 and 40 who at­tended the fo­rum, which in­cluded a prop­erty tour of Glen Ar­den, a va­ri­ety of speak­ers from a range of roles in the live­stock in­dus­try, and a cock­tail din­ner and auc­tion.

Ev­ery­one swapped their hats and jeans for dresses, jack­ets and ties on Thurs­day night to en­joy a steak din­ner fol­lowed by an ex­cit­ing auc­tion for a good cause.

Some of the coun­try’s best auc­tion­eers sold off do­nated items from se­men straws to TradeMutt shirts.

The fo­rum from Novem­ber 15-16 was also a chance to net­work – some of it done on the dance floor.
