IT'S been a successful year with more to come for the Rockhampton region's local meatworks.

Teys Brothers spokesman Tom Maguire said the year had proved uneventful compared to previous years.

"It's been a positive year," he said.

"We haven't had any major disruptions like the previous two years did with major weather events, we've had what we've classed as a more normal year.

"It all sets up for a bright outlook."

He said the next three years looked promising.

"The outlook on Beef Central today is that Rockhampton's now been recrowned the beef capital," Mr Maguire said.

"It's all positive, the next three years look good... so it's good news for the plants and good news for Rockhampton."

Teys will be shutting down for four weeks from December 20, however JBS will only be breaking for festive celebrations.

"We operate 48 weeks of the year," said JBS spokesman John Berry.

"There's no seasonal shut down but we'll be having a break over Christmas... Rocky's a fairly stable business."
