Event schedule

As part of this program, Gulf Savannah NRM is offering a free two-day tour for livestock producers in the Northern Gulf region. On the first day, we’ll head out to Abingdon Downs Station for a practical data exposure day. You’ll get an introduction to the project and learn about livestock data collection, as well as a hands-on session in the yards processing cattle and physically collecting data. We’ll wrap up the first day with a chat to industry experts and local producers, where you’ll have the chance to discuss any questions that may have come up during the day.

We’ll stay overnight in Georgetown and hear from a guest speaker during dinner. The second day will be a planning opportunity, where you’ll learn to plan business objectives and extract a data plan that coincides with those objectives. Learn what data you’ll need as a producer, and how to get set up with the right equipment. At the end of the tour, you’ll walk away with something you can use and get started on straight away for your business and data needs.
