Cattle Council of Australia, in conjunction with Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA), are providing the opportunity for fifteen grassfed beef producers to develop their skills in corporate governance.

The Australian Institute of Company Directors (AICD) Course is a five-day comprehensive program that has been designed to focus on areas of business management and skills development that are specific to cattle producers.

Applications are open to all grassfed cattle producers that have a desire to provide leadership within the beef industry.

Cattle Council CEO, Jed Matz said “This is an excellent opportunity for beef cattle producers to increase their understanding of risk management, financial performance and enhance their business skills’.

‘Producers will further their directorship skills and knowledge which will assist them in increasing the productivity and profitability of their businesses and local communities’ said Mr. Matz.

The selection criteria will guarantee that a diverse range of producers are chosen, to ensure that all aspects of the industry are represented in the program.

‘The long term productivity and profitability of the grassfed beef industry is reliant on strong leadership which we believe can be enhanced with this accreditation for cattle producers’.

‘The AICD course is administered by the Australian Institute of Company Directors, and participants will have the ability to undertake an optional assessment to achieve official recognition as a Graduate of the course’ Mr Matz said.
