Since establishment, Mort & Co has formed strong partnerships with graziers from around the country.
Over time, many of these partnerships have developed into long-standing relationships.
Currently, Mort & Co works with over 1400 producers from 475 regional areas across Australia. These producers provide Mort & Co with a guaranteed supply of quality cattle, vital to running a successful cattle and beef operation.
Mort & Co purchases a wide selection of cattle from producers for inclusion in its grainfed programs.
The Mort & Co Livestock team understands the importance of having diversified specifications that allow producers to successfully market a variety of breeds, weight ranges, ages and sexes.
Due to the spread of markets Mort & Co supplies, cattle are evaluated prior to feedlot entry. Cattle purchases are underpinned by the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS) and are completed in strict compliance with the National Vendor Declaration (NVD) and National Feedlot Accreditation Scheme (NFAS) requirements. This provides end-to-end traceability and transparency.
CATTLE PRICING GRIDS
Mort & Co provides a cattle pricing grid for all vendors. Based on market conditions, this is updated regularly.
To assess cattle and determine pricing grids, Mort & Co Livestock team members use an array of information and management tools.
