Our environmentally-friendly farm at Nowra, NSW, runs over 2000 head of cattle for the Manildra Meat Company’s natural meats brands. The Cootamundra region in the Riverina heartland is among the world’s best places for nurturing premium lamb and Manildra Meat Company is supplied by local family-based growers with ties to the land for many generations. They have perfected the art of sustainable natural farming practices to provide a premium natural product today while also caring for the land to ensure quality product as nature intended is available for the generations to come. Together with the Manildra Natural Lamb range, the Manildra Natural Beef brand has been developed in conjunction with the local producers to supply premium-quality grass-fed Angus product – all as natural as the rich countryside’s abundant sunlight and the frequent annual rainfall.
The state-of-the-art, fully-integrated Marel / Innova-technology processing plant – commissioned in Manildra’s joint venture with the award-winning, family-owned Argyle Prestige Meats – can provide traceability right back to the farm gate by scanning a barcode, and also provides Australian producers with valuable feedback of performance indicator data, a major tool in herd development.
