Production Costs a Challenge

THE bold investment by Pardoo Beef Corporation to create an irrigated pasture oasis using groundwater to produce high value Wagyu cattle in the Pilbara has created considerable interest in recent years.

The long term plan is to have 6000 hectares of crops under irrigation and, in conjunction with the Pilbara pastoral sector, turning off 100,000 high quality Wagyu cattle by 2031.We’re looking at pretty close to $5000/ha to run this at high output.
