FutureBeef is a collaborative project for the northern Australia beef industry with partners:
- Department of Agriculture and Fisheries
- Northern Territory Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade
- Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development Western Australia
- Meat & Livestock Australia.
The aim of the FutureBeef project is to support sustainable and profitable productivity gains for northern beef producers by building on and complementing:
- investment and outcomes of past and future RD&E conducted by FutureBeef partners and industry
- the sharing and collaborative development of information, knowledge and resources to more effectively and efficiently service industry
- delivery of National Beef Production RD&E Strategy outcomes and the Meat Industry Strategic Plan, MISP 2020 (PDF, 4.85MB).
We support the North Australia Beef Research Council (NABRC), an independent organisation that acts as the central consultative council comprising all major northern RD&E agencies and educational institutions (departments of primary industries, CSIRO, CRCs and universities) and producer representatives.
NABRC’s main role in implementing the national strategy is to provide a regular forum where participants can report activities and progress against the plan, and identify gaps.
NABRC provides a collaborative and open environment for this to occur and is represented at a regional level across northern Australia by 11 Regional Beef Research Committees – six in Queensland, three in the Northern Territory and two in Western Australia.
