North Australia Beef Research Council
Driving innovation for a prosperous northern beef industry
The North Australia Beef Research Council, or NABRC, provides leadership and advice to organisations who either invest in, or undertake beef cattle research, development and extension (RD&E) in Queensland, the Northern Territory and the Pilbara and Kimberley regions of Western Australia.
NABRC is an independent organisation made up of producer representatives, research organisations and education providers.
NABRC does not fund RD&E, nor employ any RD&E personnel. Rather, its role is to influence the RD&E agenda. NABRC helps ensure that innovation and learning in the northern beef industry addresses industry’s priority issues.
New NABRC Chair
NABRC is pleased to announce the appointment of Dr John Taylor as its new Chair. John’s extensive resume spans close to 50 years in the industry, graduating from the University of Queensland with a Bachelor of Applied Science in 1972, then undertaking a PhD at the University of New England, and working in rangelands research roles for the CSIRO, rising to the rank of Chief, CSIRO Tropical Crops and Pastures. From 2001 to 2012 he was the Director of Rangelands Australia and since then has been working part-time as a non-executive director for a range of not-for profit organisations supporting the beef industry in northern Australia and overseas.
