On 4 March, at the Swiss Social and Sports Club in Cape Town, the Beefy Debate event will take place and will include a presentation by internationally recognised livestock sustainability consultant, Dr Judith Capper.

The event will offer chefs, foodies, meat consumers and members of the media the opportunity to engage with sustainable beef production, discover the raw truth about what makes great beef, and why Chalmar Beef is the first choice for so many of South Africa’s top chefs.

Currently, the adjunct professor of Animal Sciences in the Department of Animal Sciences at Washington State University, Dr Capper is set to engage, educate and even entertain during her presentation.

As part of The Beefy Debate, Dr Capper will explain why Meatless Mondays will not save the world, discuss how improvements in productivity throughout the beef industry have reduced resource use and the carbon footprint of beef over the past 30 years, and take a look at the management practices and technologies that can be used to maintain beef industry sustainability in future.

Joining Dr Capper will be:

  • Willem and Sarah Wethmar, the sibling team who continues to ensure Chalmar Beef’s standing as a leading South African beef producer since the business was started by Wimpie Wethmar in 1969.  
  • Dr Phillip Evert Strydom, programme manager for the Meat Science Programme of the Animal Production Institute of the Agricultural Research Council in Irene, who will walk us through the science behind beef. 

 

To be part of this scintillating debate and enjoy a premium, bespoke beefy lunch, RSVP to Sam@speakerscorner.co.za or Rea Kekana on 011 327 1540.
