An increasing global demand for high quality meat is the catalyst for a regional roadshow which will be stopping at Wudinna and Tumby Bay early next month.

The Thomas Foods International event will encourage livestock growers to reach the company's livestock assurance program with good farming and sustainable practices.

TFI chief executive Darren Thomas said meat consumption continued to grow worldwide, especially in the Asian market.

"This is a classic case of demand and supply, and we know that local livestock farmers punch well above their weight when it comes to ethical and sustainable practices," Mr Thomas said.

"We want to do all we can to help position farmers for further future success through world-class certification.

"Our upcoming regional roadshows will provide local farmers with the opportunity to learn about how our certification process demonstrates real leadership in animal welfare and farm sustainability and the associated benefits."

AgriWebb, Shearwell and Leader Products will also be at the show to discuss the benefits of EID tags and digital livestock management software system.

The roadshows will be held at the Wudinna Football Club on March 3, from 4.30pm and at the Red Pub/Hotel at in Tumby Bay on March 4, from 4.30pm.
