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 next Round of Applications will be called in early 2021.
