Livestock SA’s annual summer meeting has drawn another high-profile guest speaker this year, with Cattle Council of Australia CEO Margo Andrae confirmed to attend the forthcoming industry event at Robe on Friday, February 9.
This year’s event builds on the success of the two previous summer meetings at Robe, when Assistant Agriculture Minister and Senator for South Australia, Hon Anne Ruston, and National Farmers’ Federation CEO, Tony Mahar, both drew a large turn-out of South East producers.
Livestock SA’s Southern Region chairman Peter Stock said Ms Andrae’s visit to the region was important given the significance of the grassfed beef cattle industry in the South East.
“We’re excited by what Ms Andrae brings to this key leadership position, especially in terms her proven skills in communications and advocacy, because the need to strengthen our industry’s image is more important than ever,” Mr Stock said.
The February 9 meeting will be held at the Robe Bowling Club, from 6.30pm. Attendance for Livestock SA members and producers is free, with a complimentary barbeque tea to be served and drinks available for purchase at the bar.
Members and other interested industry stakeholders can confirm their attendance by contacting Livestock SA’s Southern Region Secretary, Tom Dawkins, on 0402 406 965 or email
