Meat & Livestock Australia – producer case study

For Wilmot Cattle Co, it was a shift in grazing management philosophy that was instrumental to turning the beef production business around to becoming a more productive and financially resilient business and as a consequence has radically improved the ecological health of their soil.

As Manager, Stuart Austin explains Wilmot Cattle Co is first and foremost a beef production business with animal performance their driving metric, but by shifting their thinking on grazing management to work in harmony with nature, the business has reduced its stocking rate but increased turn-over and increased overall profits, and grown to become more ecologically and financially resilient.

And by utilising the best science and technology currently available and measuring all activities and actions, data has become a powerful decision making tool to track their performance and progress and respond according to changes in markets and seasons.
