Beef Trust

The Tasmanian Beef Industry (Research and Development) Trust (the 'Beef Trust') was established by the Tasmanian Beef Industry (Research and Development) Trust Act 1990 which was amended in 2014.

The Trust manages funds that were collected from beef producers in the 1980s.  The Trust funds research, development and other activities that benefit the Tasmanian beef industry.


The Trust is seeking expressions of interest from groups or individuals who require funding to support projects within the Tasmanian beef industry. The Trust has previously funded projects up to $12,000. However larger projects will be considered.

The aim is to provide financial support to R&D projects that will benefit the Tasmanian beef industry.

Closing date: Friday July 26. Details, application forms, including guidelines available from:
