According to Radio Australia, Doctor Steve Petty says thousands of square kilometres on cattle stations are relatively un-grazed.

Doctor Petty says cattle herds could increase by 50 percent within a decade, allowing an annual production of 600,000 cattle from the Port of Darwin to South East Asia.

"The properties I have worked with would suggest that potentially 50% increase is in stock numbers, with additional development is do-able," he told the radio channel.
