The Weekly Grill

S2 Ep 15: Cattle baron Peter Hughes

The Weekly Grill host Kerry Lonergan this week talks with northern Australian cattleman Peter Hughes, who has forged a vast grazing empire across Queensland and the Northern Territory over the past 40 years. Last month he was inducted into the Australian Wagyu Association’s Hall of Fame. Mr Hughes, his wife, Jane and family, have grown their Hughes Pastoral and Georgina Pastoral businesses into what is thought to be the largest privately-owned Wagyu cattle business in the world across properties in Queensland, the Northern Territory and northern NSW.

Since recent significant property acquisitions including Riveren and Inverway in the NT’s Victoria River district, and Stanbroke’s Miranda Downs Station in Queensland’s Gulf region, the Hughes property aggregation is now estimated to run more than 200,000 head of cattle – and Wagyu is a large (and growing) part of that.
