FutureBeef aims to assist graziers and the beef supply chain in northern Australia to increase production profitability and sustainability.

Our work is driven by the National Beef Production Research, Development and Extension Strategy, which aims to build wealth for those in all sectors of the beef industry, by being market-driven and sustainable. We do this by combining the relevant resources of the Queensland, Northern Territory and Western Australian Governments together with Meat & Livestock Australia. This wealth of information is available in our Knowledge centre.

We are currently updating and re-organising the FutureBeef website, so it is even easier to navigate. If you have any queries while we are doing this, please contact us at info@futurebeef.com.au.

Enjoy exploring all that FutureBeef has on offer.

The sky’s the limit… using drones in the grazing industry

Drones or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are everywhere! There is talk about using drones to do almost everything… from delivering parcels to inspecting assess and infrastructure. What does this technology mean for graziers and how they manage their properties and livestock?

In the recording of this exciting webinar, Josh Keegan (Director and CEO of the World Drone Challenge) provides his insights into how drone research and technology can be used on properties to do everything from inspect water infrastructure (troughs and dams), to monitoring invasive pest species and crop health, to tracking and monitoring livestock.
