Northern Territory Cattlemen's Association

Our Focus

You are here

The Northern Territory Cattlemen’s Association (NTCA) continues to advance and protect the interests of cattle producers in the Northern Territory and has been the peak primary industry body in the Northern Territory for the past thirty-two years.  

Representing over ninety per cent of pastoralists in the NT, from small family pastoral businesses and Indigenous organisations to large corporate entities, its members are custodians of over 700,000km2 and manage a total herd of over two million head of cattle.

The NTCA works closely with all levels of government and industry stakeholders at Territory, national and international levels to protect and promote the interests of its members.  The NTCA works with members through its Executive Committee to develop sound policy positions.

The NTCA maintains its focus on a number of areas such as:

•    Industry Management
•    Resource Security
•    Infrastructure Development
•    Economic Management and Development
•    Human Resource Management

Underpinning the NTCA’s focus is the recognition of the significant contribution to the Territory and national economy of the NT pastoralists.  The sector currently contributes over $600 million directly to the NT economy, and indirectly contributes in excess of $1 billion.  Northern Territory pastoralists have over $4.5 billion invested in the NT, making it one of the most valuable long term economic pillars of the Territory’s industries.
