Family owned and operated since 1827

MDH Pty Ltd is one of Australia's largest beef cattle operations, unique in the fact that the company is both family owned and operated. The McDonald family represents 7 generations of beef producers and 190 years of experience in Australian agriculture.

With a wide geographical spread of country in Australia's vast Queensland outback, MDH Pty Ltd runs 150,000 head of cattle across 14 properties, encompassing an irrigated farm and the company owned "Wallumba" feedlot on the Western Darling Downs.


"I never thought I could earn a living doing what I love. It's a beautiful country, great people & a lot of fun."



MDH is a proud supporter and valued partner in the Foodbank collaborative supply meat program and is helping to provide a regular supply of sausages and a vital source of protein to vulnerable Australians.

Now in our 6th year of supporting Foodbank and helping those in need, we’ve so far donated over 72 tonnes of protein to people who otherwise may have gone without.
