Red Meat Updates – Friday, 23 July 2021
The 8th annual Red Meat Updates was held on Friday, 23 July 2021 at the Tramsheds Function Centre, Launceston. After postponement in 2020, the 2021 event sold out in 48 hours, with over 260 red meat producers and industry members attending.
The theme for Red Meat Updates in 2021 was ‘profit-driven decisions for the future’ and presentations on the day covered topics in the areas of sheep, beef, business, and irrigated and dryland pastures.
Red Meat Updates would not be possible without our event sponsors and the working group greatly appreciate their continued support.
