Northern Development Consultative Committee – Expressions of Interest Sought

October 16, 2017 9:41 am

Angus Australia has initiated the formation of a Northern Development consultative committee and is now seeking expressions of interest from members who may wish to be involved.

The purpose of the Northern Development Consultative Committee is to:

  • Provide guidance in developing policies, strategies and plans relating to Angus Australia’s Northern Development Program.
  • Monitor activity, progress and results of the Northern Development Program.
  • Communicate and represent the views and requirements of northern Australia beef breeders in relation to Angus genetics and Angus influenced cattle.

Angus Australia’s Northern Development Program has the objective to “Increase the infusion of Angus genetics in the northern Australia beef herd to benefit Angus Australia members and the whole beef supply chain through increased use of registered Angus bulls and genetics.”

Expressions of interest are being initially sought for three positions on the committee being:

  • A northern based bull breeding (HBR or APR) Angus Australia member
  • A southern based bull breeding (HBR or APR) Angus Australia member that supplies bulls into northern Australia.
  • An Angus Australia member that breeds MBR recorded bulls for use in northern Australia.

The three positions above will be complimented by two further positions representing the northern commercial breeding sector using Angus genetics.

Expressions of interest must be returned to Angus Australia by October 20th, 2017 by completing an online application form.



All expressions of interest will be considered by the Strategic Projects Committee and Angus Australia Board of Directors in November, with the composition of each Consultative Committee expected to be announced in December 2017.
