The long term productivity and profitability of the grass-fed beef industry is reliant on the industry being represented by producers with strong corporate governance and leadership skills. Cattle Council of Australia (CCA), in conjunction with Meat & Livestock Australia, are providing the opportunity for beef producers to develop their skills in corporate governance.
The successful candidates will be selected based on state demand for the course. The selection criteria will ensure that a diverse range of producers (demographic, production systems and background) are chosen ensuring all aspects of the industry are represented in the program. Seven opportunities are available, one from each state and territory.
