  • animal health and welfare
  • economics
  • planning
  • corporate affairs

The Council has seven member organisations:

  • NSW Farmers' Association

  • Pastoralists and Graziers Association of WA
  • Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association
  • Northern Territory Cattlemen's Association

The Council’s specialist Taskforces provide detailed advice on the key affairs affecting the beef industry. This includes animal health and welfare, environment and climate change, research, development and extension, industry systems and food safety, marketing and trade and biosecurity.

Furthermore, the Council introduced an initiative in 2010 which is designed to inspire, empower and support young people who are passionate about the Australian beef industry. The Cattle Council Rising Champion initiative provides young farmers an opportunity to be directly involved.
