Meat Industry
Spread across a wide geography, Australia’s predominantly grass-fed beef industry encompasses a diverse range of farm sizes, cattle breeds and production systems. This diversity in production allows the industry, which exported 75 per cent of its output in 2013–14, to service customers in over 100 countries – making Australia the world’s third largest beef exporter.

Australia is the world’s leading supplier of live cattle to countries around the world, in particular throughout the Middle East and South East Asia. In 2015 Australia signed a live cattle export agreement with China, which could see up to one million head of cattle exported to China each year.

Dairy Industry
Dairy is Australia’s fourth largest agricultural industry at the farmgate and the leader in terms of value-adding. Cheese is the dominant product for the industry, with around 50 per cent sold domestically and 50 per cent exported. Australia also produces a range of increasingly specialised milk powders, mostly for export. Australia is unique among the world’s dairy traders in that production is fairly evenly split between domestic and export markets. As a result, while exports are important for the industry, there is also a significant and stable domestic market for milk and dairy products.

Australia’s dairy food safety and quality systems are well known and highly regarded in growing Asian and Middle Eastern markets, making the industry a preferred supplier of functional dairy ingredients.
