The Australian Registered Cattle Breeder’s Association (ARCBA) is the peak industry association for the registered cattle breeding sector.
In July, 2017 ARCBA ran a very successful one-day Workshop for Young Breed Leaders. A number of the participants have already secured management positions in Breed Societies.
In October 2019, ARCBA will run a longer and more comprehensive Workshop over 2 ½ days in Armidale.
This will include management training and simulation of a board environment; the digital technologies of the future at the “Smart Farm”; case studies with successful breeders using the latest genetic technologies; a Project design exercise and legal responsibilities for Directors of incorporated Breed Societies.
For young breeders who are time poor at this time of the year many will be able to attend the Workshop in 3 elapsed days including travel to the Workshop and the return journey to your respective home bases.
Those with a thirst for knowledge and more time may wish to stay for another two days to participate in post workshop activities of ARCBA and the Association for the Advancement for Animal Breeding and Genetics (AAABG).
As in 2017, this ARCBA Workshop is intended to prepare participants for management roles in Australia’s cattle breeding industry and particularly in breed societies.
