Red Meat Updates – Friday, 29 July 2022
The 9th annual Red Meat Updates will was held on Friday, 29 July 2022 at the Tramsheds Function Centre, Launceston.
The theme for Red Meat Updates in 2022 was ‘future-proofing your farm business for long-term sustainability’ and presentations on the day covered topics in the areas of sheep, beef, irrigated and dryland pastures.
Red Meat Updates would not be possible without our event sponsors and the working group greatly appreciate their continued support.
This year we are excited to present our online industry catalogue – here you can find valuable resources from each of our 2022 sponsors.
