Experience: Beef presented by MLA

Meet a cattle farmer

Learn all about beef cattle from the farmers themselves at Experience: Beef presented by MLA. Run by the RNA Future Directions Committee, this activation helps educate Ekka guests about the Australian cattle industry, one of the countries largest and most successful agricultural industries.

Cattle breeders will give insight into what's involved in raising cattle, while showing you the different small and large breeds from Australian Lowline to Angus. Learn all about the different cuts, fat layers and how beef cattle are cared for on farm, and even witness the advanced technology taking the world’s best beef from paddock to plate.

Meat and Livestock Australia will also invite visitors to put on a virtual reality headset for a 360 degree experience of the Australian beef supply chain.
