The Program

Two Days of Thought-Provoking Talks

18-20 October 2022

The Australian Lot Feeders’ Association (ALFA) is pleased to host the return of the grain fed beef industry's premier conference, BeefEx, to the Brisbane Showgrounds, Queensland in October 2022. Registrations will open mid-2022 for the main event in the lot feeding sector social calendar.


BeefEx is the grain fed beef industry’s major national conference and is expected to attract over 400 delegates from around the country, and internationally, for a celebration and showcase of the sector’s achievements.


BeefEx, held biennially, draws together feedlot operators and their staff, nutritionists, veterinarians, backgrounders, regulators, service providers, transport operators and others involved in the grain fed industry and beef supply chain.
