Angus Australia Northern Development Officer Jonathan Faris has recently been awarded the Livestock Advisor Updates bursary by Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).   

The bursary will allow Jonathan to attend the Livestock Advisor Updates, which is a regionally relevant, technical one-day workshop, designed by livestock advisors for livestock advisors.   

The aim of these technical workshops is to support the entry of less experiences/new industry participants into read meat advisory roles. 

Through his attendance to the workshop, Jonathan hopes to build networks and gain a broader understanding of the range of issues impacting beef producers in northern Australia, to further assist in his role within Angus Australia to increase the utilisation of Angus influenced cattle to improve productivity and profitability in the beef supply chain of northern Australia.
