Tasmania has a vibrant and flourishing livestock sector. From the Bass Strait Islands to Port Arthur, Tasmania produces some of the highest quality meat products, in some of the worlds cleanest environments. High quality animal protein is in demand globally, with discerning consumers willing to paying a high price for a safe, clean and sustainable product.

Continuous improvements have ensured that Tasmanian meat producers have been, and continue to be at the forefront of livestock production, leading the way in productivity and sustainability in an increasingly hungry world. Tasmania’s livestock producers will remain ideally suited and situated to meet this demand.

The TFGA’s Meat Council advocates on behalf of TFGA members with all levels of government on matters relating to the meat production sector, from welfare to taxation. The advocacy of these issues affect all producers and are key to a profitable industry in the state. The TFGA Meat Council is made of and directed by Tasmanian primary producers. These TFGA members are shaping the future of Tasmania’s livestock industry.
