About Us

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 mission of the Cattle Council is to represent and progress the interests of Australian beef cattle producers.

Any beef producer in Australia can become a member of the Cattle Council of Australia. Membership is $100.00 + GST per individual (for those already members of a State Farming Organisation, the membership fee is waived).
