Regional Forums head to NSW

October 11, 2017 5:03 pm

 

There has been a stellar start to the Angus Regional Forums roadshow, with Angus enthusiasts across Western Australia, South Australia and Victoria, receiving updates on the latest developments and services offered by Angus Australia. Next week the Regional forums will head to NSW, kicking off in Armidale on Monday the 16th of October.

The focus for the Regional Forums is ‘Angus Technology Now’ and is showing breeders how this technology  how  can  be  applied  to  both  the seedstock and the commercial sectors.

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 regional forums will also give members an opportunity to provide feedback on what products and services will be of most benefit to their Angus enterprise 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 Angus BREEDPLAN Project Officer, Ashleigh Horne.

These regional forums are completely free of charge. The forums  will commence  at  8.45am  (tea  and  coffee  from  8.30am)  and conclude  at  approximately  1.00pm.  While  not  essential,  RSVP would be appreciated for catering purposes.
