Agriculture Victoria's BestWool/BestLamb and BetterBeef Networks have joined forces for the first time to create a combined livestock industry conference to run over 26 and 27 June in Bendigo.

Agriculture Victoria Meat and Wool Program Manager Kate Linden said combining the BestWool/BestLamb and BetterBeef annual conferences will allow livestock producers, students and service providers to access a great range of information and networks in one spot.

An intensive two-day program of presenters on the latest industry developments, research and hot topics has been arranged.

Highlights from the BetterBeef program include marketing cattle in a digital world, using merit testing to select the right pasture for your environment and the future of objective carcass measurement for yield and quality.
