WestBeef Feedlot | Award winning beef feedlot in WA’s Wheatbelt region
WestBeef Feedlot 46 Watson Road BURAKIN WA 6467
WestBeef Feedlot is a strategically located livestock logistics asset located in Western Australia’s Wheatbelt region, approximately 260 kilometres north east of the Freemantle Port, and is on the doorstep to WA’s pastoral zone with abundant cattle operations.
With a council approved capacity of 7,500 standard cattle units (SCU), the property’s current infrastructure supports around 5,000 SCU and is currently operating at capacity under a custom feeding model.
WestBeef has the advantage of access to abundant sources of grain and fodder from the local grain industry as well as the benefit of its own large area of cropping land surrounding the feedlot.
In Western Australia, many cattle from the pastoral region are transported to backgrounding properties in the south west of the state in preparation for live export or entry into feedlots for domestic processing. Cattle are sometimes required to be spelled during transportation and WestBeef can be utilised as a quarantine and spelling facility, two important service offerings that provide the potential for additional revenue streams.
WA has several ports that are suitable for exporting both live cattle and containers of chilled and frozen beef. Fremantle is the state’s largest port and handles the majority of processed beef exports and a large proportion of live cattle shipments.
Important features of WestBeef feedlot include:
•Total land area of 1,030 hectares (approx.)
•800 hectares (approx.) suited to dryland cropping.
•Approval for 7,500 standard cattle units (SCU).
•41 main pens of 1,000 sqm (approx.) each, a further 11 larger pens, induction yards, undercover work area and yards including race, pound, hydraulic crush and loading ramp.
