Driving change, driving our future

The 29th NTCA Annual Conference, AGM and Gala Dinner was all that we expected and more! As the premier industry event on the beef industry calendar it was attended by over 400 people, including producers, agribusiness and industry leaders from the Northern Territory, Australian states, and overseas, MPs, and senior ministers from the NT and federal government. 

With many opportunities and challenges facing our industry the NTCA is a driving force for continual improvement, adaptation and change.

Over its 29 years through representing over 90% of industry  the NTCA has been effective in lobbying for the rights of its members, from small family operations to large corporate companies.


Out Northern Territory members manage a landmass in excess of 680,000 square kilometres turning off  600,000 head of high quality cattle per year and providing leadership in pastoral land conservation, market development and trade, regional development, Indigenous employment and engagement.
