Agriculture Minister David Littleproud says beef has been at the forefront of Australia’s economic recovery from the COVID-19.
Speaking from Beef Week in Rockhampton Mr Littleproud said more than 100,000 people will attend the event.
“We are one of the biggest beef exporting nations in the world, in fact number two, and out beef producers have had a pretty tough time over the last three years,” Mr Littleproud told Sky News.
“But the industry’s on its way up, it’s a $15 billion industry and without our economy would have been buggered during COVID-19.
“Resources and agriculture has lifted us out of this recession.”
