Dairy & Beef cattle
Beef Cattle Farming
The beef cattle industry in NSW is the second largest in Australia. It holds about 20 per cent of Australia’s cattle and calves, making it a valuable source of livestock for the Australian cattle industry, economy and consumer market.
How Local Land Services can help beef farmers
Local Land Services works to secure the future of farming by protecting and growing farm productivity. Our staff are on the ground with practical advice, information and training.
We help farmers discover new ways to improve their business and balance production, profit and sustainability.
We work closely with organisations such as the Department of Primary Industries to provide up-to-date technical advice and support. Our staff work towards strategic plans on biosecurity and welfare to the benefit of Australian farmers and our land.
Our staff coordinate local producer groups and hold field days on locally relevant topics including animal husbandry, pasture management, disease management and drought preparedness.
If you’d like to know more about this, please contact us.
