The spotlight will return to the NSW/Victorian Upper Murray next month for local and regional beef producers at the Upper Murray Beef Producers Dinner, an important resilience event for the community.
A COVID-safe event is planned for Saturday, November 27 starting at 6pm at Jingellic Hub. The organising committee has planned the event to showcase the Upper Murray region, with a decision taken to lead on ‘carbon neutrality’ and the coming reality of a new ‘carbon’ focused world for beef production and to inspire beef producers to greater success.
During a gala dinner, guests will receive keynote addresses from Doug McNicholl, Program Manager, Sustainability Innovation, Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and Mark Allison, Chief Executive Officer, Elders Limited. Ben Thomas of Rabobank will also deliver a market snapshot.
Doug McNicholl will deliver an address about the red meat industry’s goal to be carbon neutral by 2030, and, based on the MLA roadmap, the steps beef producers should be considering.
Mr Allison is pleased to have the opportunity to deliver an address about the current state of Australian agribusiness.
“Australian agriculture is set for a very positive and prosperous future, with many opportunities for improved productivity, profitability and sustainability. These opportunities far outweigh the many challenges on our journey,” he said.
Guests will enjoy a sumptuous dinner catered by Sarah King from The Ten Mile, Holbrook.
The committee is proud to have attracted high calibre speakers; the audience can be assured of an evening that will inspire, inform and deliver a long-remembered occasion that celebrates beef production in the Upper Murray, really good food and fabulous company.
The committee received seed funding via bush fire recovery grants from Greater Hume and Snowy Valleys Councils, which enabled planning for the event to commence early this year.
Since then, the committee has attracted major sponsorships from Elders Limited, Meat and Livestock Australia, Rabobank, Rotor Solutions Australia, Ray White Rural Albury, Walwa and Tumbarumba Veterinary Practices and Reiland Angus.
Support has also been provided by Murray Local Land Services and Murrumbidgee Primary Health Care Network and a number of other local businesses. Jingellic Hub Incorporated thanks all sponsors, supporters and beef producers who have already booked tickets for the event.
