Regional Cattle Info

Livestock is a critical and a major part of the Central Queensland economy. The Central Highlands region is renowned for high quality beef cattle that are produced on natural forest pasture and downs country and in particular on the famous ‘brigalow belt’ buffel country that extends from Nebo to the Arcadia Valley.

Cattle are marketed through Emerald Saleyards on a weekly basis with prime and store cattle offered to a range of meatworks operators, feedlots and pasture fatteners.

Emerald Land and Cattle offer graziers the option of using this live market or can organise and assess livestock for sale to the many processor abattoirs in the region or various Queensland feedlots.
