Event organisers, Beef Australia, will use the funds to deliver an event focused on improving the profitability and productivity of Australian producers, processors and retailers, by bringing in new customers from overseas and emphasising the opportunities new technology can provide the industry.

Beef Australia Chairman Geoff Murphy said Beef 2012 would be conducted under the theme of ‘Innovation, Collaboration, Inspiration and Celebration’.

“Our vision is not just to celebrate our great industry, but to generate new trade opportunities for the Australian beef industry through international collaboration and by exposing all sectors of the supply chain to innovative new technology”, Mr. Murphy said.

“A host of overseas industry representatives will visit Rockhampton for the Beef 2012 International Beef Cattle Genetics Conference to be held at CQ University Australia. This conference will bring international cattle industry players face to face with Australian producers, as well as showcase the latest advances in scientific research and animal management techniques.

“Delivering a strong focus on innovation, technology and trade will make Beef 2012 the best event yet, and this would not be possible without the generous ongoing financial support of all levels of government, and in particular the ongoing Federal Government grant as announced by the Agriculture Minister, Joe Ludwig".

“Beef 2012 will not only deliver a much-needed boost to the Rockhampton regional economy in the wake of this summer’s floods, but will deliver long-term benefits to the beef industry right across Australia”, Mr. Murphy said.
