The beef cattle grazing industry is the major user and manager of land in the tropical savannas. It contributes hundreds of millions of dollars to regional economies across northern Australia and provides employment for thousands, both directly and indirectly via service industries. Cattle grazing properties have existed in the tropical savannas for more than a century and as such played a significant part in the region’s history and development.
In the Northern Gulf, grazing operations begin in the east at the head of the Mitchell and then extend out through Croydon to the broad channel south and west, including the Gilbert. Northern Gulf Resource Management Group plays a central role in facilitating projects to benefit graziers across this vast stretch of country.
