This project explores issues considered important to the overall development of the emerging buffalo industry.  The importation of Riverine buffalo into Australia has changed the production focus from purely meat to dual purpose, with the addition of milk production into the enterprise mix.

The report is targeted primarily at the buffalo producer, but should also be of interest to government (research and policy), manufacturing (meat and dairy) and overseas producers.  There may also be some interest for farmers in other industries who wish to diversify into the buffalo industry, which can be entered without a great deal of new capital expenditure on infrastructure, particularly if the farmer is already in a livestock enterprise.
