beef production systems


  1. OFF GRASS

    Historically, Australia's comparative beef advantage is producing "finished" beef off grass.

  2. FEEDLOTS

    These are becoming more popular having increased in number due to lower grain prices, the supermarket requirement for continuity of supply and the gradual deregulation of the Japanese beef market. Whereas this trend might increase, it is not expected that there will be a major shift away from the grass based system.
