About our Sponsors:
Cha Cha Char Wine Bar & Grill is Brisbane’s signature steakhouse, specialising in a wide range of high quality meats. Owner, John Kilroy has been a long-time supporter of the Australian Wagyu industry, showcasing Wagyu beef through a variety of cuts and products from sirloin to rump caps to gourmet sausages.
Pardoo Beef Company is based in Western Australia’s Pilbara region, and aims to establish a regional breeding herd of purebred Wagyu. The challenge is to do so in a sustainable manner in a region with low rainfall. Below the Pilbara is a water resource that operated with care will cater for up 6,000 hectares of crops to support the feed needs of a Wagyu operation.
Since the early days of the Wagyu industry, Neogen Australasia have been part of DNA testing to enable breeders to improve the genetics of the Australian herd. Neogen acquired the assets of UQ AGL back in 2017 – a prominent supplier of genetic testing for Australia’s cattle industry. This move now gives the Wagyu industry access to world-class genomics locally.
Zoetis provides a range of animal health products and services for Wagyu beef, working with producers and veterinarians to make informed decisions for the betterment of the herd. Zoetis’ alignment with the Wagyu industry will enable producers to maximise the potential and profitability of their Wagyu beef operation.
Providers of agricultural software since 1992, Practical Systems delivers management, production and accounting solutions to enable Wagyu producers to plan, budget and prosper their Wagyu operations. Through comprehensive analysis, producers to keep ahead of the day-to-day management for optimum performance of the farm operation.
