Ashmulla Pastoral Company
AAC runs three Pastoral Stations that operate under our subsidiary company Ashmulla Pastoral Company Pty Ltd.
The three properties are:
- Peedamulla Station
- Mt Divide Station
- Karbar Station
The mission of the Ashmulla Pastoral Company is to run a sustainable and profitable pastoral business on each of our managed stations, incorporating the goals and objectives of the Ashburton Aboriginal Corporation. Showing an example of excellence in station management and training to support the ongoing development of other indigenous cattle stations through practical assistance and training of trainees to take up staff positions.
The focus of the training is low-stress stock handling, infrastructure development (fencing, yard building, etc), horsemanship skills with particular attention to building confidence and skills to successfully enter the workplace. The shearers’ quarters have been refurbished to provide a realistic setting for trainees who will be taking on jobs at cattle stations across the state.
The corporation views Peedamulla Station as environmentally significant. In 2018 AAC was successful in having Peedamulla included in a research project run by the CSIRO. The project is a partnership between CSIRO, the Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet (DPMC), the National Native Title Council (NNTC), and local and regional Indigenous corporations in three Northern Australian locations, of which Peedamulla is the only case study in WA. The goal is to learn more about building Indigenous capability to attract investment to emerging on-country Indigenous corporations and enterprises. For each case study the NNTC chooses, the partners will co-develop the scientific. Indigenous knowledge, and business opportunity information needed to attract investment. “How-to-guides” showing the necessary inputs for building Indigenous on-country enterprises will be developed.
