What makes Australian beef so good?

A large part of what makes Australian beef so good is how cattle are fed and nourished in Australia. All Australian cattle are raised on grass. While some cattle spend their whole lives on grass, a large percentage (around 40%) are transitioned to a grain-based diet, resulting in the term “grain fed beef”.

Certified Australian grain fed beef is world class – produced using professional systems, high quality standards and progressive research and development.

The grain fed beef industry attracts passionate people who care for animals, are conscious of maintaining a sustainable environment, and aim to produce a quality product for consumers.

This website has been created by the Australian Lot Feeders’ Association (ALFA) on behalf of Australian grain fed beef producers to provide consumers with an understanding of how Australian grain fed beef is produced and the people who produce it.
