Rural Funds Group Limited (ASX:RFF) General Manager - Investor Relations and Marketing, James Powell, provides an update on the company's recent transaction with JBS Australia for five feedlots in Queensland and New South Wales and its fully underwritten $149.5M entitlement offer.: Finance News Network RFF is pleased to announce a transaction with JBS Australia.
