Welcome to HerdThat, an initiative to highlight the importance of the NT cattle industry within the economy.
The Territory beef industry is worth $1.2 billion. It is export-focused, with around 400,000 live animals sent to SE Asian markets each year.
The NT is Australia’s largest exporting region, with 40% of the nations total export moving through Darwin port annually.
The NT beef industry employs 10,000 people directly and indirectly – from cattle producers, station hands, truck drivers, to mechanics, shop assistants, scientists and public servants.
Supporting the NT cattle industry supports Territory jobs and growth.
