The groups are facilitated by the Department of Agriculture and Food, as part of the Cooperative Research Centre for Beef Genetic Technologies accelerated adoption programme.

Department development officer Julianne Hill said interested producers could learn more about the programme at meetings at Manjimup, Nannup and Karridale.

Ms Hill said the meetings would discuss areas of interest and possible future speakers and field trips.

“The Beef Profit Partnership Groups are a great way to work in collaboration with others to address issues that are constraining productivity and profits,” she said.

“There are already groups established at Albany, Denmark, Esperance and Jerdacuttup, which are tackling things like grazing management, fertiliser application, service fees and pasture use. These groups are making significant gains that are making a difference to their bottom lines.”

Ms Hill said numbers were limited to six to 10 participants per group.

“The groups take a comprehensive approach to improvement, where an analysis of each participant’s cost of production is undertaken and shared with the group in an effort to understand the business drivers and make informed decisions about improvements,” she said.

The Beef Profit Partnership Group meetings will be held at noon at the Manjimup Hotel on Wednesday, 28 July; the Karridale Tavern at noon on Thursday, 29 July; and the Nannup Bridge Café at 6pm, Thursday, 29 July.

RSVPs are essential by Monday, 26 July to Julianne Hill on 9780 6108 or [email protected].
