Red Meat Updates Wrap Up

RMU and date banner

Wow, what a day!

On Friday the 28th of July, over 350 people attended the fifth annual Red Meat Updates conference in Launceston, Tasmania.  It was standing room only for many of the presentations, as Tasmania’s red meat sector turned up in force to network, learn and celebrate our exciting industry.

In the coming week we will be updating our website with presentations, photos and proceedings from the event – so stay tuned.  But in the meantime, here are a few action shots from Red Meat Updates 2017!

A great program developed by industry, for industry

The program at Red Meat Updates is developed by the Red Meat Updates Working Group, chaired by Georgie Burbury.  This group of producers and industry representatives are responsible for setting the conference theme and agenda each year.  The program this year proved to be very popular, with the majority of people surveyed rating its content and relevance 8/10 or better.

Congratulations to the Red Meat Updates Working Group!
