Farm Paddock to Plate: Interactive Resource

As part of our Research, Development and Extension program we have undertaken research to develop deeper understandings about the industry by producing educational resources for primary schools. We have engaged Angela Colliver Consulting to develop these resources to engage teachers and students about the role and importance of the red meat processing industry in the Australian economy, environment and wider community, plus the broad range of career pathways available through the red meat processing industry and broader supply chain.  

A key objective of this project was to support us and our members in expanding awareness about the red meat processing industry by engaging teachers, students and career advisors about the role and importance of the industry in the Australian economy, environment and wider community.

The purpose of the Farm Paddock to Plate interactive resource is aimed to introduce school students to the red meat processing industry in Australia and the diverse careers within it.

The animated resource shows the journey of how beef, lamb and goat meat gets from the cow, sheep and goat to you.

Most people know that beef comes from a cow but many don’t know how Australian beef cuts are processed and produced. Similarly, with sheep and goats, do you know how their meat is processed and produced?

Most of us buy our red meat from shops. But is that where they came from originally and is that where they are processed and produced?
