A new committee has been elected and those members who put their hands up are Ian Clayton - Chairperson, Derek Pennington - Secretary, Peter Fleming - Treasurer and Marg Rawlings - Promotions Officer.
So we are looking forward to a new year with some exciting projects and opportunites to build a brand for Dexter beef here in Tasmania, with talk mooted about holding a showcase dinner with Dexter beef as the star ingredient and hopefully attract a celebrity chef to add some notoriety to the event. We are also looking the possibilities of gaining some government funding to enable us to set up a permanent display at Clarendon House, and also further develop branding to help us establish commercial markets for Dexter beef in Tasmania under one banner.
Mountain River Dexter Stud are keen to hold an event at their property in Mountain River, details to follow. And a cattle preparation day will also be look at in the near future. If there is anything our members would like us to provide please let one of the committee know, their details are on the Committee Members page.
Also before I close a welcome to two new members, Louella Bovell from Cradoc Dexter Stud and Dean Quinlivan and Milan Tumpach who are still waiting for approval of their stud name. We hope you enjoy your association with the Promotion Group, I have not met a more motivated group of Dexter breeders anywhere in Australia.
