Elders Killara Feedlot is a supplier of high grade, grain fed cattle
Elders’ association with the Killara feedlot began in 1998, and eventually led to finalising our complete ownership during April 2010. Killara feedlot is well positioned on Pine Ridge Road on the edge of the Liverpool Plains, approximately 15 kilometres west of Quirindi and approximately 70 kilometres south of Tamworth in New South Wales.
This prime location is one of the most fertile farming areas in Australia, producing sorghum, cotton and a variety of other cash crops. The feedlot’s proximity to the New England grazing district also leaves it well positioned for livestock procurement.
Killara’s cattle are sourced from locations throughout central and northern New South Wales, using the Elders branch network as the preferred supplier.
