NT Beef Tour 2020

Finishing in Alice Springs, there is the opportunity to stay on for the annual Northern Territory Cattleman’s Association Conference which attracts a large contingent of beef producers from across Australia:

While we are still locking in the full itinerary to include a mix of Northern Territory's iconic beef operations, research and diversification initiatives, here is a little of what will be an unforgettable experience:

  • Eva Valley Meats – Paddock to plate business with on-site abattoir supplying an ethically raised local product to Darwin and surrounding areas.
  • Bridge Creek Station – Don & Kelly White operate a cattle breeding and trading operation with an export holding facility.
  • Tipperary Station – An iconic aggregation covering 386,000 hectares. A cattle operation that includes a feed lot and boasts ecotourism business, large scale irrigated hay, a mango orchard and a cotton trial currently underway.
  • Maryfield Station – Northstar Pastoral, owned by Colin Ross, is a pastoral operation running 80,000 head of Brahmans. They are currently looking at leucaena development and feedlotting in the tropics.
  • Hayfield Station – The Dyer family operate a 15,000 head cattle breeding operation and helicopter mustering business.
  • Neutral Junction Station – The Frith family are spreading the climatic risk by diversifying some of their country into an irrigation development.
