OPPORTUNITIES and challenges for Australia’s sheep, beef and goat meat producers will be outlined in a free Agriculture Victoria webinar this week.

The 90-minute webinar will provide an in-depth update and discussion around livestock markets in Australia and around the globe, focussing on the unprecedented supply and demand conditions currently facing the industry.

Industry leaders Meat & Livestock Australia managing director Jason Strong, and Mecardo general manager Robert Herrmann, will present information and analysis that will assist red meat producers to understand what these challenges and opportunities might mean for them.

Mr Herrmann has acknowledged that while there is nothing predictable about the current situation, he is confident the agriculture industry will soldier on with the job.

“The farm won’t stop, and you’ll need to continue to make decisions to best position your business in the current and future market,” he said.

The webinar is free, and producers can join the afternoon session via their phone and/or computer, tablet or smartphone. Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and discuss issues with the presenters during each session.

The webinar is to be held on Friday April 17 from 2-3.30 pm. For further information or to register please go to: https://login.redbackconferencing.com.au/landers/page/1bde49
