Australian Cattle Council : Yearbook 2010
53 One that involves handling animals and machinery with extensive out-of-doors work? The beef cattle industry may be for you. The production of meat for profit is the business of the beef cattle industry. The Australian beef cattle industry is one of Australia's premium export industries and many skilled people are needed in the beef cattle industry. At Charles Darwin University offers a Certificate II in stock and station skills course specialising in beef production. This course enables students to gain basic knowledge and skills in agriculture. This level is meant for those who wish to gain entry into the agriculture industry as station hands and may require some level of supervision when entering the industry. Charles Darwin University also offers a Certificate III in Agriculture that enables students to expand on the knowledge and skills gained in the units in level II. Graduates from this course will have acquired a level of knowledge and skills which will equip them for work as senior farmhands or senior stationhands. A senior farmhand or stationhand is a skilled worker and is likely to be involved in co-ordinating a wide range of beef cattle and property operations.

PORT of DARWIN Australia's northern gateway for cattle export Live cattle exports are an important part of the Northern Territory's -- and Australia's -- agricultural economy, and the Port of Darwin is perfectly geared to handle over 50% of the nation's livestock exports. With its multi-modal facilities, deep water berths, dedicated infrastructure, excellent quarantine services and highly trained stevedores, the Port of Darwin boasts more than 25 years live export experience and currently holds the world record for having loaded 22,184 head of cattle on a single vessel. Darwin's proximity to Australia's beef producers and the growing consumer markets of South East Asia means cattle spend less time in transit and maintain their superior quality. So, when it comes to exporting live cattle quickly and efficiently, put your trust in the Port of Darwin.
