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.
Every sale supports the promotion of Herd That and the NT cattle industry
