AgForce Cattle develop progressive policy on behalf of our members for the Queensland cattle industry. AgForce Cattle Board members are all cattle producers and our fundamental value is that policy is made by beef producers for beef producers.

From Paddock to Policy: How does it happen?
Policy is developed through talking with our members, either online, via phone or face-to-face meeting. This policy proposal is then taken to the AgForce Cattle Board and debated and a plan is made for it's execution. Its execution will depend on the target audience (for example, industry (Meat & Livestock Australia) or government (for example, the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries) and whether it is State or Federal.
