Retiring Committee Members

The following Members have retired from the ABCA committee after many years of service and we extend our sincere appreciation to Peter Dingle, Lindsay Barlow and Jarni Fearnley for their contribution.

 

Peter Dingle – Peter joined the management committee in 2010 as the Zone 1 representative. Over this period of service Peter has held the office of Vice President and was President in June 2015. Peter was elected as a Federal Management Representative in 2015.

 Lindsay Barlow – joined the committee in 2014.

Jarni Fearnley – joined the committee in 2014.

 

The retirement of these three members of the committee after their extended period of service to the breed is well deserved. The commitment and level of personal input into the management of the breed is hard to vocalise here but it has been significant. On behalf of the membership we sincerely thank Peter, Lindsay and Jarni and wish them many years of Brangus breeding in the future. Many of the decisions they have enacted have contributed to the success of the Brangus breed today.

 

Show Shirts

The Brangus Committee at their Face to Face meeting where advised that the current Show shirt is no longer available and the Committee are asking Expressions of Interest from Members in changing the design of the shirt and colour if there are better options. Members are requested to contact the Office via phone 02 6773 3373 or Email This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and advise us of your suggestions.

Beef Australia 2018

The ABCA are now seeking the expressions of Interest from the members who are wishing to be involved with the Upcoming Beef 2018 (6th – 12th May). The Brangus breed achieved a great deal of publicity and success with the Beef 2015.

 

If you are interested in obtaining a site and being aligned within a combined Brangus compound please contact Natalie at the ABCA Office to register your interest. We would also welcome ideas on how we can better promote Brangus at Beef Australia.

 

Zone field days & Zone meetings/ideas

 

The Federal committee are working towards staging a number of zone field days in 2017 to bring together Members and interested persons to show case our wonderful breed.

 

Alex McDonald ABRI Extensions Support is onside with the ABCA to offer technical support where possible at these field days. Any interested stud or commercial operation who would be prepared to host such an event is encouraged to contact the ABCA office to assist in the planning phase.

 

 We are also wishing to stage a zone meeting at each of these field days and encourage all to participate in discussions and bring ideas and suggestions forward to be presented to the Management committee for their consideration.
