2019 NTCA Conference

You are here

The 35th NTCA AGM & Industry Conference was held at the Darwin Convention Centre on the 28th and 29th of March 2019.

The conference program comprised a diverse list of experts who questioned and challenged the thinking of attendees with keynote speaker Allan Pease teaching producers to set ambitious and fulfilling business and personal goals, as well as how to overcome roadblocks, obstacles and tough times. Fiona Simson, President of National Farmers Federation, impressed delegates with her speech focusing on closing the age-old divide between the bush and our urban cousins, or more pointedly between consumers and farmers.

Other speakers included: 

Ian McConnell - World Wildlife Fund: 'Inside out, Outside in. A view from a cattleman within WWF'

Dr Bradd Witt – University of Queensland: ‘What the public really think about the Australian cattle industry’

Lisa Sharp and Michael Finucan – Meat and Livestock Australia: ‘The heat is on’

Mick Keogh – Australian Competition and Consumer Commission: ‘Do we have truth in labelling?’

Angus Gidley-Baird – Rabobank: ‘In an increasingly bipolar marketplace, are we putting too many eggs in one basket? The beef industry’s reliance on Asian markets’

This “High Steaks” conference could not have been possible without our sponsors and we thank them for their continued support.
