Abstract/Summary Increasing national and international pressures are impacting the profitability and sustainability of the northern Australian beef cattle industry, and many of these pressures are similar to those faced in several areas of the world, including the USA. This paper discusses current and emerging challenges in Northern Australia in regard to its beef industry, describes a proposed strategy for enhanced genetic improvement, and draws comparisons to related issues that should be considered in the Southern United States beef industry.
