THE latest information on meat research and future developments will be the focus of the inaugural agribusiness Meat Research Forum to be held later this month.
The Department of Agriculture will host the one-day forum, in collaboration with agribusiness representatives, to be held on Monday, November 19 at Ascot Inn, Belmont.
Like the successful Crop Update's agribusiness conference, on which the meat forum is based, it will be complemented by a series of regional forums for producers early next year, which will address more localised research issues.
The forum will draw together representatives from throughout the sheep, cattle and live export industries to provide an update on current research projects and to identify future research needs to boost the industry's prospects.
Registrations to attend the agribusiness Meat Research Forum close on Monday, 12 November. Upon registration, at a cost of $80 per person and $60 for subsequent company delegates, forum participants will be sent a manual of all the research presentations to view prior to the event.
To register to attend the forum or for more information contact Lauren Johnston at the Department of Agriculture in Bunbury on 9780 6241 or John Lucy, at the department's Manjimup office on 9777 0124 or 0417 923 034.
