Why sponsor Red Meat Updates?

  1. Red Meat Updates is Tasmania’s leading red meat industry event, with a strong, positive reputation. Our sponsors tell us they are proud to be associated with the event.
  2. The program is developed by a producer-led working group, which ensures the content of the day is relevant, interesting and educational – and well attended by sheep and cattle producers.
  3. The conference consistently attracts over 250 people – last year 330 people attended – which makes it a value for money networking opportunity, with a very targeted audience.
  4. The producers who attend are people who want to improve their business performance – they are there to make new contacts and find out new information.
  5. Previous sponsors recognise the value of the event and consistently sign up to be involved.
  6. You will also learn new things! Make sure you are up to date with industry news, research outputs and tips for optimising enterprise profitability.
  7. Your business will be promoted from the time you sign up, through to after the event, via our social media channels (which keep attracting new followers).

Take the next step – benchmarking project for sheep & cropping operations

Red Meat_header_plain

MLA benchmarking project for Tassie sheep & cropping businesses

Producers who run businesses with sheep and cropping currently have an opportunity to get involved in a benchmarking project, which aims to identify what it takes to successfully integrate cropping and livestock enterprises in southern Australia. The project is being delivered in Tasmania by Macquarie Franklin, and is funded by Meat and Livestock Australia.

Participating businesses will be asked to contribute enterprise management and financial data which can be analysed to identify the key profit drivers in mixed farming enterprises. They will receive detailed benchmarking reports and have an opportunity to dig deeper into what it all means as a group workshop. If you’ve been thinking about getting into benchmarking this is a great opportunity to test the water and see if it’s for you.

Applications close on Friday 31 March, and places will be filled on a first in basis so get in early.

Red Meat Updates virtual farm tour now available online

low res logo

The 2016 Red Meat Updates virtual farm tour is now available to view online.

The objective of this year’s virtual farm tour was to look at how three Tasmanian red meat producers had prepared for and managed through what can only be described as a very challenging season (note: this was filmed in May 2016).  We also asked them what they had learnt this year and if there were any tools or information they used to help make the hard decisions around feeding and stocking rates.

The farm tour featured producers from across Tasmania:

  • Chris Headlam, Lowes Park – Woodbury
  • Matthew Lester, Beattie Lester Beef – Lileah
  • James Walch, Stewarton Pastoral – Epping Forest

For more information about the producers, you can read about them in the 2016 RMU proceedings.

The 2016 virtual farm tour was supported by TP Jones.
