Beef Extension Services

SBTS & TBTS

The Southern Beef Technology Services (SBTS) and Tropical Beef Technology Services (TBTS) projects are joint initiatives between Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), the Agricultural Business Research Institute (ABRI) and a number of stakeholder breed associations that represent temperate and tropical cattle breeds, respectively.

The TBTS project first began in August 1997, while the SBTS project commenced eight years later in 2005. The two projects work closely together and are committed to providing the northern and southern Australian beef industries, respectively, with innovative extension services and technical support to maximise the use and understanding of BREEDPLAN and related genetic technologies.

The SBTS and TBTS teams achieve this through the provision of technical support to breed association stakeholders and their members. The teams also conduct Regional Forums and other educational workshops around Australia, where attendees can learn how to make best use of BREEDPLAN information in their breeding programs. A range of technical documents (including a bi-annual magazine) and e-media, covering a wide selection of cattle breeding and genetics topics, are also available via the SBTS & TBTS websites.

ABRI are passionate about supporting the essential services provided by both the SBTS and TBTS teams. Their extensive knowledge and experience within the beef industry are valuable resources to ABRI clients and their beef producer members across Australia.
