The NT Buffalo Industry Council Inc. (NT BIC) is an incorporated association that represents buffalo producers in the Northern Territory.
The NT BIC does not trade in its own right, but seeks market opportunities for live animals, meat products (TenderBuff) and genetics within Australia and internationally on behalf of its members.
The NT BIC is an independent body of N.T. buffalo producers and acts as a forum for the exchange of ideas and to present government proposals, problems and solutions that may affect members or the industry as a whole. The NT BIC remains as a part owner of the Riverine purebred herd based at Beatrice Hill Farm and has input into the management and distribution of buffalo from the herd. This herd is expanding at an increasing rate and is expected to maintain 100 head of breeders within 2 years. Once the target is reached, more animals from the herd will be available for sale around Australia. Plenty of bulls are available for sale at present from our herd for upgrading of herds in Australia and overseas. A good cross-section of available Italian and US genetics is available from this herd.
