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!
