The Tasmanian cattle industry produces meat for domestic and international markets and milk for domestic consumption and as inputs for further processing into high quality cheeses and butter. The Tasmanian sheep industry produces ultra high quality fine wool, sheep for live export and meat for foreign and domestic markets.
