The Australian Lot Feeders’ Association, on behalf of the Australian cattle feedlot industry, hosts two biennial National Conferences – BeefEx in even years and SMARTBEEF in odd years.
BeefEx attracts over 500 delegates for a celebration and showcase of the feedlot sector. It involves multiple networking opportunities and a program that features speakers on ‘big picture’ topics.
SmartBeef attracts over 300 delegates for a ‘ground level’ technically focused conference that incorporates both plenary and practical sessions.
Both conferences profile and reward leaders in the industry, with presentations including the Feedlot of the Year Award, Young Lot Feeder of the Year Award, Excellence in Feedlot Education Medal, Top Gun Award, Innovation/Innovator of the Year Award and Communicate Your Research Competition.
ALFA Life Membership and the Outstanding Services to the Industry Award may also be awarded during the Conference.
Due to COVID-19, BeefEx 2020 was cancelled. ALFA plans to run SmartBeef in 2021.
The program is due to be launched in July 2021. Sign up to our Media Release distribution list to receive information as it is released.
