Future of Northern Cattle Industry on stage at KPCA Innovation Conference – Friday 26 October, Port Hedland

  • Learn how Pardoo is on track to create a $1.8b Wagyu industry at Field Day Irrigation Site tour – Thursday 25 Oct
  • Live Export Panel session featuring industry leaders will discuss how fact over fiction will prevail for a strong future

The KPCA is pleased to present a huge line up for its Field Day and Innovation Conference at Port Hedland, Thursday 25th and Friday 26th October 2018.


Presenting a very rare opportunity for delegates, Pardoo Station will show a tour of its irrigation site which is currently in its third stage of development and a key strategic move toward building a $1.8b Wagyu industry by 2031.


The following day at the Innovation conference will be a full schedule to discuss key industry developments, culminating in the live export panel session.


Sessions will include a keynote from Cotton Australia’s Adam Kay who will share how they turned around negative perceptions to earn their licence to operate in the north.


CSIRO’s Chris Chilcott will share a recent NAWRA (Northern Australia Water Resource Assessment) case study which looked at the integration of cropping into existing beef enterprises.


Further topics include biosecurity, health and safety and grazing best management practice.


Chief Executive Officer KPCA Emma White encourages all who interface with the northern cattle industry to attend and take part in the conversations.


“This is a crucial time in our industry development and we’ve chosen our speakers with careful consideration to the needs of cattlemen operating in the North West,” said Emma.


“We’re proud to be able to deliver such a diverse program within such a short period of time to offer maximum value to all who attend.”


The KPCA Innovation Conference will be followed by a gala evening at The Esplanade Hotel, raising money for Dolly’s Dream and RFDS.


Tickets can be secured here.
