Rugby World Cup

I have just returned from a great trip through Japan and Korea. I was lucky to mix in some work and pleasure with two games over the weekend at the Rugby World Cup. The Wallabies game against England was very disappointing and this was further exasperated by the English fans. The France v Wales game on the Sunday was an exceptional game filled with drama and a heart felt shot at the title by the French.

On the way home I came back by South Korea which was only an hour and half flight out of Japan. Interesting to see Japan and Korea, two countries geographically so close but two cultures which are so different.

Tokyo and Seoul sights and an intriguing Korean supermarket meat display (bottom right). Found some terrific knife shops in the Tokyo Fish Markets, couldn't help myself. I thought Australian poker machines were bad, the Japanese take that to the next level with what they call Pachinko! It must cause industrial deafness in all the oldies that play them.

Big plans for Australia's red meat industry

  • Red Meat 2030 was released last week by the Red Meat Advisory Council.
  • The plan aims to double the value of industry sales and triple the amount of capital invested in the sector within the next decade.
  • By 2030 the aim is that Australian red meat will be carbon neutral and have the absolute highest standards of animal welfare, traceability and biosecurity.
  • The plan also strives to position Australian red meat as a superfood – the highest quality protein of choice worldwide – and recognise the role Australian red meat plays in developing regional Australia and global security.

Beef industry today

  • Innovation, unity and information flow are among the key ingredients that give the Australian beef and feedlot industries a competitive edge and point to a sustainable future.
  • The industry should see evolving consumer demands as an opportunity to tap into a changing market.
  • The processing sector has embraced technology and become much more exacting in the field of measurement.
  • The feedback of information down the supply chain to producers is crucial. Better information flow-back enables validated decision making for each player in the supply chain. This then results in a better end product.
