A Career Path Worth Considering
Despite our relatively small population here in Australia, we are the seventh-largest producer of beef and veal globally – a thriving sector that contributes billions of dollars to the national economy each year.
Whether it’s the breeding and raising of livestock, selling and processing of beef cattle or any of the multitude of vital support services that make all of that possible – the career opportunities are diverse – with something to suit anyone with a keen interest in this all-important and valuable sector.
In 2018–19, Australia’s red meat and livestock industry employed approximately 434,000 people. Of these, 189,000 were directly employed in the industry. The additional 245,000 people were working in businesses servicing the industry.
Though not without its share of challenges, Australian red meat continues to be recognised as the high-quality protein of choice worldwide. This is an industry of great passion and pride – with a shared vision of a thriving Australian beef industry that strives to continuously improve the wellbeing of people, animals and the environment.
The industry, as a whole, is invested in a framework of sustainable beef production – socially, environmentally, and economically. One of the themes underpinning this framework is a commitment to a safe, healthy, and capable workforce.
The beef sector in Australia cares about the health and safety of its people. It is committed to ensuring opportunities for education and training are available and ensuring diversity in its workforce.
