Bob, Jim and Don McDonald talk about the history of McDonald Family and their contribution to the Australian cattle industry.
As one of Australia’s largest beef cattle operations, with a wide geographical spread across Queensland’s outback, MDH Pty Ltd derives its strength from being a family owned and operated business with a long history in the Australian cattle industry. At the heart of the business is family and an inheritance which began with the “original” Don McDonald who came from Scotland as head stockman on the first shipment of live cattle to Tasmania in 1827. The McDonald Family who is owner/operator of MDH Pty Ltd has for over 180 years worked in the Australian cattle industry, and has acquired a comprehensive knowledge of the industry, developed a deep respect for the bush, and invested in land, science and innovation respectively.
