Cattle Producers Australia Limited is an incorporated entity specifically designed to democratically represent the national interests of grass-fed cattle transaction levy payers. Legitimacy for the establishment of Cattle Producers Australia is firmly rooted in the recommendations of the 2014 and 2017 industry Senate Inquiries and the ACCC Cattle and Beef Market Study, released in March 2017, with a further Update report released in May 2018.
