25 February 2016: QRAA on show at Northern Beef Producer Expo

25 February 2016

QRAA is thrilled to be heading back to Charters Towers in March to showcase the range of low interest loans available to beef producers attending the Northern Beef Producer Expo.

Two of QRAA’s regional Client Liaison Officers – Peter Crowley and Sam Spina – will be at the Charters Towers Showgrounds from 4-5 March to highlight how the loans can help beef producers recover from drought, support restocking and invest in productivity enhancements.

"We are really looking forward to returning to the Northern Beef Producer Expo this year, as last year's inaugural event was a huge success with over 400 people in attendance," Peter said.

With this year's theme being 'Grazing into the Future', Peter encourages attendees to consider the benefits of a long-term partnership with QRAA.

"QRAA offers a range of financial assistance programs. Our low interest loans can help turn visions into reality, assist with drought recovery or expand their business,” Peter said.

QRAA’s loans currently have interest rates as low as 2.71 per cent, with the Drought Recovery Loans being used for restocking. QRAA has provided almost $30 million in loans and grants to beef producers across Queensland this financial year alone to help their farm businesses.

Farmers are urged not to self-assess their own eligibility, but instead visit the Expo to talk to Peter and Sam about eligibility requirements.

"Sam and I will be available to discuss loan requirements, terms and conditions and the application process," Peter said.

"QRAA's Client Liaison Officers around the State are also available to meet with producers on their property, if they prefer to make an appointment for a time that better suits them."

The Sustainability and First Start Loans are initiatives of the Queensland Government’s Primary Industry Productivity Enhancement Scheme administered by QRAA.

The Drought Concessional Loans and Drought Recovery Concessional Loans Schemes are funded by the Australian Government and delivered by QRAA.
