Idemitsu is committed to working with existing enterprises to develop new agricultural businesses, and rehabilitate existing sites. We currently have one long-running cattle farming operation and concept studies underway to establish new cattle operations.
Working the land
Managed by local couple Peter and Vicki Howard, Nogoa Pastoral is a farming joint venture majority owned by Idemitsu and has been a staple in the community for over 25 years.
Nogoa Pastoral is predominantly a cattle operation, with approximately 1500 head of cattle.
There are also dry land farming initiatives including sorghum, wheat, mung beans and chickpeas, and some land leased for cotton.
Nogoa is a positive demonstration of agriculture co-existing with mining operations for the greater benefit of the local Emerald community.
Exploring the land
We are currently exploring new ways to grow our agricultural operations by utilising our available land Australia-wide.
Leveraging our agricultural expertise from Nogoa Pastoral, we are progressing further feasibility studies across our operations to explore cattle breeding and grazing opportunities built on sustainable farming practices.
