Managing cattle after a natural disaster

Cyclones, floods, storms and bushfires can severely affect your cattle operation. Returning to profit after a natural disaster can be a slow process.

One of the first steps you can take is to assess your property and stock. This will help you put a plan in place to recover from the natural disaster. After evaluating the state of your land and your cattle, you may find that you need to reduce your stock numbers.

Reducing the head of cattle on your property can give you time to repair buildings, equipment, fences, watering points, cattle yards and pastures. It can also free up your cashflow.

This guide explains how you can reduce your stock numbers to help you return to profit after a natural disaster.
