Howard Smith has been elected to take over from Andrew Ogilvie as president of the Cattle Council of Australia.

Smith operates a breeding, fattening and trading beef operation with his family in Rolleston, Central Queensland.

He said: "The beef industry is currently confronting significant challenges, including discussion around industry restructure, consumer interest in sustainability and animal welfare and the continued challenge of farm-gate prices.

"If we are going to provide the best possible representation for Australian beef producers, the industry representational structure must be solid.

"The areas that I see as being integral to my role at Cattle Council are ensuring that the industry structure is solid and supporting the beef language review."

Tony Hegarty from Cassilis, New South Wales, was elected as vice-president.
