Northland farmers gain insights on Queensland beef sector

Northland sheep and beef farmers Kevin and Annette Boyd were among a group of 20 farmers who attended a week-long educational beef tour in Queensland last month organised by agricultural banking specialist Rabobank.

The tour featured two days at the world-renowned Beef Australia event in Rockhampton as well as visits to a range of beef operations throughout Queensland including Brisbane-based meat retailer Farmer in the City, Grassdale feedlot in Miles, the Roma saleyards and Emerald-based Clissold Downs (beef trading) and SwarmFarm (agri-technology).

The tour was organised by Rabobank to provide the bank’s local and international beef clients with an opportunity to network with other farmers and to learn more about beef operations in Queensland.
