Our feedlot is located on the Southern Darling Downs, centrally located within a large grain growing
and cattle breeding district.

The feedlot is licensed for 15,000 head and is accredited under the National Feedlot Accreditation
Scheme No 125. Feeder cattle are purchased direct from farmers and are fed high quality grain,
have access to shade and clean water in all pens. Careful husbandry is carried out by trained and
experienced feedlot staff to supply prime grain fed cattle to John Dee Warwick's processing facility.

John Dee Warwick - Processing Plant

Our plant is licensed to world markets - Japan, Korea, China, UK, Europe, Middle East, SE-Asia and
North America. Plant is halal registered.

Trained staff and careful supervision of procedures and hygiene are carried out in our modern
processing facility. Beef carcases are chilled for 24 hours, then chiller assessed by AusMeat
qualified graders to determine marbling score, meat and fat colour.

Carcases proceed through the boning room in graded lots according to quality. Vacuum packed
product passes through chill tunnels which ensure long shelf life.

John Dee specialises in cutting to particular customer specifications, supervised by our well trained staff.

Food Safety

We are dedicated to supply safe, quality products that meet our customers requirements.

Food safety is of utmost importance and is reflected in our quality assurance systems.

HACCP

Our HACCP plans at our processing facility in conjunction with our own NADA accredited laboratory
ensure product is of the highest food safety standard. All production steps are constantly
monitored and recorded.

SureTRAK

All grain fed cattle are DNA traceable utilising SURETRAK technology which is in turn supported
by the National Livestock Identification Scheme. Another mandatory system - Livestock Producer
Assurance ensures all the beef we process is free from chemical residues and maintains our clean
and green status. Our plant uses Suretrak, taking samples of every animal and through this system
products can be traced back to animals from the production process - allowing us full traceability.
