If you enjoy working outdoors with large animals and machinery, then a career in the beef sector may interest you. Beef is one of Australia's largest rural exports reaching several billion dollars per year.
Success in the sector requires a broad range of skills including the management of cattle, property, people and finances. Opportunities exist in gene technology, embryo transfer and artificial insemination as the sector aims to meet select export and domestic market standards.
Many large cattle corporations operate throughout Australia, encouraging employees to move between locations. Opportunities exist for competent and skilled stationhands, stockmen and managers.
