The opening session will bring together researchers, industry representatives and producers to talk about environmental sustainability, profit and the path to carbon neutrality.

Concurrent beef and sheep sessions will give a snapshot of new research from the paddock to the plate including discussion about bloat, the use of drones for mustering sheep, lamb carcase assessment and meat science.

The final session will focus on building resilient livestock systems taking in biosecurity, hard-seeded legume pastures, the ecosystem services of dung beetles and a presentation crunching the numbers on restocking with current high livestock prices.
