What we can offer you

Access Australia’s most awarded beef brand & global markets

From Japan to Dubai, our grain-fed beef is a world-class award winner. The proof is in our dedicated customer base, many of whom follow our brand across restaurants and even countries.

Be part of an established supply chain

We’ve been in the lot feeding business for over 60 years, so we’ve had plenty of time to hone our craft. We have a secure and vertically integrated supply chain and a diverse portfolio of markets for our beef products which makes us resilient in unprecedented times.

Family owned and operated

Stockyard’s operations were established by Del and Robin Hart A.M back in 1958. Our company is now led by Robin’s son, Lachie Hart and his wife Sarah, and we remain proudly 100% family owned and operated.

Being solely family owned means we operate like a small business with genuine family values and the backing of decades of knowledge and experience. You’ll be joining our family and we are committed to supporting the growth of your business alongside ours.

We’ll get to know your family and you’ll get to know ours

We value the relationships we build with our suppliers. We want to understand who you are, your business model, and how we can help you achieve some long-term goals with us.

You won’t work with an agent who solely has price in mind. Instead, our decisions are driven by quality and consistency of supply. We’re committed to doing contracts well in advance to make your business planning easier. Plus, we can also offer flexibility both in our purchasing options and in solutions when our industry inevitably throws you a curveball.
