MEAT & Livestock Australia will launch a series of ‘impact’ webinars for the red meat and livestock industry next month covering supply chain and sustainability innovation, integrity systems, marketing and community trust.
Registrations are now open for the webinars that will feature MLA managing director Jason Strong and MLA leaders providing attendees with updates on key MLA investments and coming developments.
Mr Strong said the theme of the webinars was clearly aligned with MLA’s ambition to create and capture more value for red meat producers across the cattle, sheep and goat sectors.
“MLA continues to invest in the newest and best blue-sky technology and strategies to benefit the industry’s long-term success, as well as solving today’s issues through proven research and development to deliver practical on-farm solutions that producers can implement today,” he said.
“Our industry is in fantastic shape and the success we are experiencing should come as no surprise, it is the result of many years of hard work and ambition.
“We can’t however rest on our laurels or take that success for granted – what we now need to be asking is how we can work together to make the red meat industry even more impactful, and what does that journey look like as we strive to double the value of red meat sales by 2030 – and that’s the main theme our webinars will explore,” Mr Strong said.
“The webinars will bring to life the key programs and projects that will deliver the largest impacts for the industry and provide insights, ideas and inspiration to red meat producers aiming to unlock value in their own businesses to improve productivity and profitability now and into the future.”
The webinar series will run in the lead up to MLA’s AGM on Thursday, 25 November 2021 and feature a panel discussion where producers will be able ask questions around MLA’s investment in crucial research and marketing activities.
