What do you think would do more damage, Australia's 1.2 million camels or our 29 million cattle?
Some of Australia’s biggest cattle producers are:-
Australian Agricultural Company (AACo)
They’ve got 485,000 cattle spread over 7.2 million hectares of the Northern Territory and Queensland.
Northern Australian Pastoral Company (NAPCO)
They’ve got 200,000 cattle on six million hectares of Queensland and the Northern Territory.
S. Kidman and Co
They’ve got 200,000 cattle on 17 properties on 110,000 square kilometers of the Northern Territory, West Australia, Queensland and South Australia, as well as a 3,000 capacity feedlot in South Australia.
McDonald Holdings (MDH)
They’ve got 170,000 cattle on 11 cattle stations on 3.36 million hectares spread from one end of Queensland to the other.
Stanbroke Pastoral Company
200,000 cattle on 1.6 million hectares across Northern Australia.
Consolidated Pastoral Company (CPC)
357,000 cattle on 5.8 million hectares on 19 cattle stations throughout Western Australia, the Northern Territory, Queensland and New South Wales. Like all the rest they want to expand business.
Eight million of these (beef)cattle are killed each year for people to eat. Yet global warming continues. How can killing 1.2 million camels make any difference? However these cattle are mostly in arid areas, so the camels would be eating grasses that cattle might have eaten.
