Congratulations to Jo Robertson!
Some great news in the FutureBeef extension team! Congratulations to Jo Robertson, Beef Extension Officer, Charters Towers. Jo was selected from a high quality pool of 49 applicants as one of nine young and talented industry participants for the inaugural Graeme Acton Beef Connections Mentor Program. The winners were announced at the Roma Young Beef Producers Forum in November.
The program participants will be mentored by experienced beef industry leaders, as well as having formal personal development training. Beef Connections is a new initiative of the Beef Australia 2015 Next Generation committee and is being supported by Westpac Agribusiness to assist in the acquisition and retention of talented young people in the beef industry.
