Reports aren’t just for school (The Australian Beef Report)

Welcome to the cattle station classroom podcast. In todays lesson we are going to learn about the Australian Beef Report.

The Australian Beef Report shows you the financial and production performance of family owned beef businesses in Australia. It has been written for profit focussed producers, industry service professionals and other industry stakeholders who would like to better understand, and improve, beef business performance in Australia at the production level.
