Cattle, Breeding & Genetics
AACo owns and operates Australia’s largest cattle herd with around 340,000 head spread over our properties across Queensland and the Northern Territory. We specialise in grain fed beef and Wagyu beef production.
AACo’s innovation team works closely with bull breeding units to run world class breeding programs.
We use a range of tools to ensure important traits are evaluated with the highest accuracy possible under our extensive production systems.
We employ technologies including performance recording and evaluation, Total Genetic Resource Management (TGRM), feed efficiency testing, walk-over weighing technologies and genomics.
Owning our cattle right through the supply chain gives us the ability to capture paddock, feedlot and carcass performance and link this directly into our breeding program decisions.
