Farm animals roam free on the Australian continent, but not as they once did.
That’s because a new farm is now growing beef in Australia’s biggest cattle herd.
Recode has the story of the largest cattle herd in the world, a herd of 6,500 cows and calves at the BHP Billiton cattle farm in northern New South Wales.
The story of that herd is part of our coverage of the 2017 World Livestock Conference.
Recode’s Adam Davidson and I sat down with the CEO of BHP, BHP Chairman and CEO Andrew Friesen to talk about how they’ve managed to turn this cattle-farming operation into the world’s largest cattle farm.
We have a lot of work ahead of us, but the big thing for us is that the cattle are being fed on grass that has been regenerated in the BHCA.
They’re being fed with grass that’s been regenerating for the last six years, and they’re getting their feed from grass that is not only green and healthy, but is also rich in nutrients.
They get their hay from a lot more than grass.
The feed comes from cows, they get their feed in their pens, and the cattle that are coming in have been fed with pasture that has not only been regenerative but has also been a part of the original cattle stock.
Andrew Friesens son, Alex, was born at the farm in the mid-1990s.
It was a very large and very old farm, so it was a bit of a shock when Alex was born, and then it was just a matter of getting on with it.
He’s still on the farm, and he’s very active on the weekends.
He also helps with a lot the social activities on the property.
He spends a lot time with the herd and with his kids, and it’s a very happy environment.
Andrew is an amazing man.
He loves his family, his friends and the animals that he loves.
And I love the people that I work with and that I’m able to work with.
We are all incredibly proud of what we have achieved, and I think what we’ve done is a tremendous success.
It’s an amazing place to work, and to work on the most beautiful of farms.
And it’s great to be able to do it with the people you love.
Andrew and his wife, Ann, are incredibly proud.
They were really, really lucky to have been able to be on this amazing farm in Australia.
It’s been an incredible experience for us, and we’re proud of the work we’ve been able a couple of years now to get our farm to where it is.
We were able to put together a team that’s the best in the business, and Andrew and Ann have done a tremendous job of doing that.
And that’s something that we have to thank Andrew for.
He has the confidence that they can manage it, and that they have the resources to do the job.
And that’s very important.
I know there are a lot people who have looked to BHP for their next project, and for that I think that’s true.
They have the expertise to do a lot with that project.
They’ve had a very successful past, and now they have this new farm.
And the people are coming back to the farm and they are enjoying it.
We’re going to have a very, very long time to look back on this as a success.
We also want to thank our partners at BHP who have helped us a lot in that process.
It is such a privilege to have the support of our friends at BHAC, and of course we’ve got the support from the Australian Government.
And we want to say thank you to our customers and to our partners.
We would like to thank them for supporting this project and helping us along the way.
