Beef raising is a profitable sideline for many West Australian dairy farmers and gives their farming operation flexibility and versatility.
With suitable management and feeding the weight gains and consumer acceptance of dairy beef allow it to compete strongly with beef from other sources.
The breeds most common on W.A. dairy farms are well suited to beef production.
