August 1, 2016 2:52 pm

The 2016 Angus National Conference was held in the border town of Albury NSW during May.

Conference participants heard from industry leaders from the production, feedlot, processing, export and retail sectors, that systems were either in place, or under development, that would address the ongoing challenges and constraints to deliver greater returns and profitability to all participants in the industry.

Examples provided by speakers included the development of quality beef brands and labels underpinned by better objective measurement systems for carcass yield and meat quality (eg.via MSA), the importance of good documentation, quality assurance and verification systems; and, improved communication of objective data through the supply chain.
