Measuring carbon at the farmgate brings dividends

Mudgegonga cattle and seedstock producer Julian Carroll has one long-term goal among his targets for measuring carbon emissions within the production process – gaining preferential access to markets for his high-end, high marbling feedlot Angus steers by identifying their carbon footprint.

Mr Carroll will be one of the speakers at next month’s Farming Carbon 2023 Conference, which will be hosted at the George Kerferd Hotel Beechworth on Tuesday, 28 February 2023 between 9.30am and 4.30pm.

The conference, which aims to meet a growing need to promote awareness of what carbon farming is all about, is supported by North East Catchment Management Authority (CMA) with funding from the Australian Government’s National Landcare Program.
