Grass-fed Beef Industry Moves Towards New Region Based Structure

Representatives of Cattle Council of Australia, the Australian Beef Association, the Northern Pastoral Group, Australian Meat Producers Group, the Concerned Cattlemen’s, Northern Territory Cattlemen’s Association and the National Farmer’s Federation met in Brisbane over the weekend to discuss implementation of the new Grass-fed Beef industry representation model (As presented to Agriculture Minister Joyce on 17 February).

Howard Smith, Cattle Council President chaired the meeting.

“This group of grass-fed cattle industry representatives is strongly united on the new structure and is committed to working together to developing a successful and effective leadership organisation” said Mr. Smith.

“It was a very positive meeting which identified the need to fund an independent implementation committee”.

The independent implementation committee will include representation from the 15 regions of the new structure and will be tasked with developing a constitution and funding proposal for the new structure, which will be put to a vote of all grass-fed levy payers.

“All immediate efforts and resources will now be focused on getting the committee up and running” said Mr. Smith.
