What is the Cattle Backgrounding Project?
Building a higher value beef supply chain in WA: linking pastoral beef to high-value markets through new backgrounding systems
The project engages directly with producers to promote and facilitate entry into the backgrounding industry. This includes identifying and developing solutions for barriers that are restricting the development of a robust backgrounding industry. This project will work toward an integrated beef cattle supply chain between northern pastoralists and agricultural region farmers to increase the number of cattle suitable for processing and sale into the Asian export market. It will establish a platform to connect northern and southern producers, lot feeders, and processors to ensure supply continuity for domestic and international markets. This project is supported by project partner Harvey Beef, the Department of Primary Industries and Regional Development and Royalties for Regions.
