Cattle Council of Australia
The Cattle Council of Australia is the peak producer organisation representing Australia's beef cattle producers. The Cattle Council of Australia was established in July 1979, bringing together for the first time all farmer organisations whose members had beef cattle enterprises.
The objective of the Council is to represent and progress the interests of Australian beef cattle producers through wide and regular consultation with, and policy advice to, key industry organisations as well as relevant Federal Government Departments and other bodies regarding issues of national and international importance
