The FutureBeef Program for Northern Australia is an exciting partnership of four organisations working together for profitable and sustainable northern beef production.

Our work is driven by the National Beef Production Research, Development and Extension Strategy where we aim to help beef enterprises become more competitive and sustainable.

We work closely with industry organisations, natural resource management groups and other government agencies to maximise our collective investment.

This website is just one of the products of the FutureBeef Program for Northern Australia. Enjoy exploring what we have to offer!



Learning from Cash Cow – the northern Australian beef fertility project

In this presentation, Professor Michael McGowan (University of Queensland) focuses on providing a practical approach to answering the question ‘How is my beef breeding business going?’. Michael also introduces a spreadsheet that will help beef producers:

  • develop key performance indicators
  • measures estimates of beef production from breeding herds
  • create benchmarks defining what level of beef production and reproductive performance is commercially achievable by country type
  • identify the major factors that affect the likelihood of a cow contributing a weaner each year.
