Australian Feedlot of the Year Competition

Striving for excellence in feedlot design and management.


The Australian Feedlot of the Year competition is an initiative of the Australian Lot Feeders’ Association (ALFA). Since its inception in 1991, the competition has aimed to encourage continuous improvement within the feedlot industry and to recognise those feedlots that are operating their business at the forefront of the principles of the National Feedlot Assurance Scheme (NFAS).

The competition is open to all NFAS accredited feedlots, no matter if you’re small, medium or large, family run or a corporate operation – the competition is designed to find the very best of the best and to encourage continuous industry improvement.

ALFA Community Heroes Award

Australian feedlots are vital to the fabric of rural and regional Australia by creating jobs, supporting families, and contributing to local economies and the environment.


This award recognises and rewards those feedlots that are actively nourishing their local communities and environment by going above and beyond to support their community, that ‘give-back’ and better the environment around them.
