Title: Beef in Northern Australia
Author(s): Kelly, J. H
Date published: 1971
Publisher: Canberra : Australian National University Press
Description: In the harsh environment of Northern Australia cattle raising is the only industry that has survived in the hinterland for any length of time. It has faced many challenges - hostile terrain, drought, distance from markets, lack of manpower - and the vast areas catch the public imagination, attracting investors and pastoralists. What then are the prospects for the beef industry in the North? Given efficient managements - and many are not - and given constructive government policies - again, many are not - the prospects are good. The author proposes practical measures for improving quality and quantity of beef cattle as a model for future development. This book, while unsparing in its criticism of the inept and the inefficient, is a constructive study of an area vital in terms of economics, politics, and the pastoral industry.
