A RANGE of online tools have been released to assist Queensland’s multi-billion dollar beef industry.
With support from Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), Queensland’s Department of Agriculture has produced a series of YouTube videos featuring some of the state’s leading graziers talking about their businesses.
The nine videos cover a range of topics and profile the management practices these beef business leaders have implemented to improve their returns.
Agriculture minister Bill Byrne congratulated the participants for their willingness to assist and inspire others in the industry.
“These videos offer insight into the sheer scope of how a grazing business operates and the many elements that a business manager must consider,” Mr Byrne said.
“Topics covered include land management techniques such as grass cover, strategic use of watering points and tackling soil erosion to beef breeding and genetics, workplace health and safety, biosecurity and record keeping.”
Mr Byrne also acknowledged DAF’s FutureBeef team, which managed the production of the videos and ensured they covered topics that were important to Queensland’s grazing industry.
“FutureBeef aims to use new and traditional extension methods to ensure graziers can access the latest science and technology,” he said.
“The team is committed to making the industry a world-leader in grazing best practice, and this YouTube video series is another great example of that.”
