Australian red meat farmers care about their livestock and the environment in which they operate.
Their livelihoods rely on healthy ecosystems, thriving environments and good animal health and welfare.
Meet some red meat producers from across Australia who share insights into their unique approach to farming, with an unwavering commitment to best practice agriculture and continual improvement in all they do.
Paul Crock, Beef Producer, South Gippsland VIC
Paul and Samantha Crock produce grass-fed Angus cattle in Southern Victoria. After taking ownership of the land in late 2000, they quickly set about developing a grazing management system and fencing off steep areas, water courses and wind breaks to protect vegetation and improve water quality.
With help from friends and family they have planted over 50,000 indigenous plants to help increase biodiversity and provide shade and shelter for their livestock.
Paul believes their use of low stress stock handling combined with their commitment to environmental sustainability ensures the meat they produce is of the highest possible standard.
