Alcoa Farmlands
 
Alcoa is best-known as an aluminium producer, but did you know we also have a successful farmlands business?
 
Alcoa’s pledge to environmental rehabilitation and sustainability is demonstrated in the 19,000 hectares of rural landholdings it manages at Pinjarra, Wagerup and Boddington – known as Alcoa Farmlands.
 
Alcoa Farmlands has the largest beef breeding herd in the South-West of Australia, producing approximately 2000 tonnes of beef annually.
 
By developing strategies to develop best practice in sustainable farming, Alcoa Farmlands exhibits a farming system that increases beef production per hectare to make it economically sustainable and environmentally compatible.
 
While beef cattle is the main agricultural activity, with around 10,000 run across the three locations, one of our properties runs up to 5,000 sheep on a seasonal basis alongside a 400ha cropping program and an aquaculture enterprise.
 
Alcoa Farmlands is acknowledged within the industry for producing a high standard of cattle product.  It has been accredited with Cattlecare Quality Assurance for over 10 years, achieves audit standards of the Livestock Producers Association QA system and consistently produces livestock that satisfies the Meat Standards Australia grading system.
 
In the past 10 years Alcoa Farmlands has planted more than 850,000 trees, protected 23km of streamlines through fencing and revegetation of stream banks, protected and enhanced 4500ha remnant vegetation and revegetation areas and protected 11 wetlands.
 
With annual gross turnover of more than $2.5 million, Alcoa Farmlands is proud to spend over $1.2 million in our local communities each year.
