THE Northern Territory Cattlemen’s As-
sociation (NTCA) represents the lucra-
tive beef industry in Northern Australia.
The NTCA peak primary industry group in the
Northern Territory represents over 250 pastoral
operations across 700,000 square kilometres
running over 2.1 million head of cattle.
The pastoral industry in the Northern Territory
generates over $400 million in revenue provid-
ing over 1900 jobs breeding and supplying beef
cattle for the domestic and export markets.
With promising signs of recovery and im-
proved seasonal and market conditions the
NTCA is focussed on ‘looking forward’ toward
both challenges and opportunities for ongoing
viability of industry.
Earlier this year inspiring key-note speakers
addressed NTCA conference delegates from
the NT, Australia and overseas with confront-
ing, progressive and critical thinking reflecting
a global perspective on industry roles and
Key-note speakers represented banking, trad-
ing, marketing, international standards and
industry sharing a common theme of future
potential for Northern Territory beef.
The challenges represent industry moving
beyond traditional values and practices toward
increasing market expectations of national and
global consumers instilling confidence and sup-
port across the community.
The concept of ‘social license’ dealing with in-
dustry political and environmental sensitivities
focussing on the entire supply chain from ‘pad-
dock to plate’ calls beef producers to monitor
every stage of production for reducing conflict.
The Australian live cattle ban to Indonesia
became the ‘yard-stick’ for assessing the concept
of ‘social licence’ and beef exporters ensuring
total supply chain certainty, the new challenge
for stability. Australian primary producers need
to think globally in relation to supply chain
logistics as best practice industry standards at
home can be destroyed by sub-standard animal
welfare practices abroad!
‘Act local, think global’ reflects the advice by
experts providing case studies of general indus-
try conflict needing significant investment in
recovering social licence to operate after suffer-
ing national and international consumer outrage.
The concept ‘Asian Century’ for primary pro-
ducers echo’s however Australia as the ‘food
bowl’ for Asia remains debated on logistics of
insufficient capacity for supply.
However Australia becoming the ‘Asian Deli-
catessen’ is the new rhetoric encouraging beef
producers to reset export parameters toward a
premium product targeting an emerging new
market of global consumers.
Primary production targeting the ‘Asian
Delicatessen’ makes sense for meat processing
industries and manufacturing in Northern Aus-
tralia complementing the live export trade and
value adding to a world class product.
If you have something good for sale, that
people can eat, then you have sustainable sales,
so why not new market thinking focusing on the
Northern Australia story?
