Australian Wagyu Association 2018 Wagyu Edge Conference

02 May 2018 - Mackay Convention Centre

The conference will run from May 2 to 4 and the post-conference tour from May 5 and 6 ending in Rockhampton where delegates may choose to stay on for the triennial Beef 2018 exposition which runs from May 7-11.
 
Brilliant facilities at the Mackay Entertainment and Convention Centre will ensure the expected 500 delegates are able to absorb the latest developments in the rapidly growing Wagyu Industry.
 
The broad range of accommodation to suit all requirements is within walking distance of the Convention centre.
 
Speakers will explore the growing markets for Wagyu beef in Australia and overseas with some of the industry’s biggest names explaining how to make the most of the expanding market.
 
The importance of marbling and melting points will be discussed by leading scientists.
 
A theme of the 2018 conference will be fullblood breeding and management with demonstrations and explanations on how to obtain optimum performance from Fullbloods in long fed programs. Because Wagyu calves are so valuable, survival rates are critical and one of the breeds most prolific producers of fullbloods and crossbred will explain how to manage calves to eventually produce carcasses of the top value.
 
The once every five years Wagyu show in Japan earlier this year was attended by thousands including an Australian delegation. The popular Q&A session at the 2018 will include observations from some of the attendees on today’s Japanese Wagyu with questions invited from the floor.
 
The Elite Wagyu sale will again be one of the conference highlights and the agents report strong enquiry for potential vendors with highly credentialed cattle and genetics for sale.
 
The two-day post-conference tour will visit significant Wagyu operations between Mackay and Rockhampton where the tour will end with the option of departing from Rockhampton or staying on to attend Beef 2018.
