Hi <<First name>>

We hope you've enjoyed a break over Easter. 

It's now all systems go as we are counting down to the biggest event in the beef calendar - Beef Australia 2015! Did you know that there are only 25 days and about 23 hours until kick-off?

You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter, or send us an email. We'd love to hear from you... 

Happy reading!
