Australia’s oldest organic beef marketing company, OBE Organic, and the Livestock Biosecurity Network (LBN) have today announced a formal partnership to help cattle producers better manage biosecurity risks and, as such, protect and grow valuable markets.
OBE Organic plans to host dedicated organic Grazing Best Management Practices (BMP) forums every six months after a resounding response from producers at the first OBE Organic Grazing BMP forum.
More than 70 organic beef producers and industry stakeholders attended the forum in Roma on Friday 21 August to be introduced to the Grazing BMP program.
