Barkly Research Advisory Committee

The Barkly Research Advisory Committee (BRAC) is a producer lead group that provides advice to the minister and the Department of Industry, Tourism and Trade (DITT) on technical issues and priority areas of research, development, extension, education and training that will improve the productive efficiency of the beef industry in the Barkly region.

The committee, supported by Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), is vital to ensure that research funding is being prioritised in areas that will directly benefit producers on the ground. BRAC also ensures accountability by monitoring the progression of government research projects and programs in Barkly region. DITT supports the committee by providing a staff member to be the secretary as well as a senior representative from the Agriculture division.

The committees have been closely involved in the development and ongoing monitoring of the department’s major projects in their regions. For a list of the current livestock industry projects, go to the Northern Territory Government website.

The chair of the committee also represents Barkly region on the North Australia Beef Research Council (NABRC) which is an independent organisation that helps ensure that innovation and learning in the northern beef industry addresses industry’s priority issues and is relevant to end users. Go to the NABRC website.
