Angus Australia Regional Forums – 2016

July 22, 2016 9:30 am

The Angus Australia Regional Forums have kicked off early July. The Regional Forums will take place at the following locations over the next couple of weeks:

  • Daylesford VIC,  Tuesday, 19 July
  • Hamilton VIC, Wednesday, 20 July
  • Hahndorf SA, Friday, 22 July
  • Launceston TAS, Tuesday, 26 July
  • Bunbury WA, Thursday, 28 July

The regional forums are open to anyone with an interest in Angus cattle and are a great way to catch up with Angus Australia staff and fellow Angus beef producers.

The theme of the 2016 regional forums will be “Genomics in a Modern Angus Beef Business” and will predominantly focus on the opportunities to utilise the ever increasing range of genomic technologies in Angus beef breeding operations. Presentations will address questions such as:

  • What genomic technologies are available?
  • What are the main considerations when investing in genomic technology?
  • What opportunities are provided by genomics?
  • What are the main challenges when utilising genomics?
  • What genomic technologies are likely to be available in the future?

The regional forums will be delivered by Angus Australia’s Chief Executive Officer, Peter Parnell, Breed Development & Extension Manager, Andrew Byrne, and Strategic Projects Manager, Christian Duff.

The regional forums are completely free of charge. With the exception of the forum in Bunbury, the forums will commence at 8:50am (tea and coffee from 8:30am) and conclude at approximately 12:45pm. While not essential, RSVP would be appreciated for catering purposes.
