Videos aiding change in the billion dollar beef industry

The Palaszczuk Government has released a range of online tools to support Queensland’s multi-billion dollar beef industry.

With support from Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries (DAF) has produced a series of YouTube videos featuring some of the state’s leading graziers talking about their businesses.

The series of nine videos covers a range of topics and profile the management practices these beef business leaders have implemented to improve their returns.

Minister for Agriculture and Fisheries Bill Byrne congratulated the participants for their willingness to assist and inspire others in the industry.

“These videos offer insight into the sheer scope of how a grazing business operates and the many elements that a business manager must consider,” the Minister said.

“Topics covered include land management techniques such as grass cover, strategic use of watering points and tackling soil erosion to beef breeding and genetics, workplace health and safety, biosecurity and record keeping.”

The Minister also acknowledged DAF’s FutureBeef team, which managed the production of the videos and ensured they covered topics that were important to Queensland’s grazing industry.

“FutureBeef aims to use new and traditional extension methods to ensure graziers can access the latest science and technology,” he said.

“The team is committed to making the industry a world-leader in grazing best practice, and this YouTube video series is another great example of that.”

FutureBeef is a collaboration between Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and the governments of Queensland, the Northern Territory and Western Australia.
