    About Australian Agricultural Co Ltd

    Australian Agricultural Co Ltd (ASX: AAC) raises cattle in Australia to process and export globally. It owns and operates Australia's largest beef herd — around 382,000 head — on its properties across 6.5 million hectares of land in Queensland and the Northern Territory. Its properties account for approximately 1% of Australia's land mass.

    Established in 1824, Australian Agricultural Co Ltd counts itself as Australia's oldest continuously operating company. It specialises in both grass-fed and grain-fed beef, as well as Japanese-style wagyu beef. AACo distributes branded beef to a range of customers globally, tailoring its route-to-market model by country to capitalise on regional opportunities.

    AACo invests in research and technologies in a bid to produce high-quality beef and improve productivity. The company says it has more opportunities for gathering data because its cattle are owned and monitored throughout the supply chain.
