The Truth About Kangaroo Meat

Kangaroo

Kangaroo meat is known for being low fat, high protein and is starting to become quite popular in both human and pet food consumption. Which is why we have Kangaroo Jerky as part or our range. 

There seems to be some misconception in regards to the production of Kangaroo meat, but it is actually one of the most natural and humane sources of meat production.

Kangaroo’s are naturally Organic and Free Range animals due to the fact they are non farmed, wild animals of Australia. They have a wide diet consisting of wild grasses, shrubs and trees which contribute to their excellent health and nutritional value.

The harvest of Kangaroos is closely monitored in all states to control the balance between over population and regulation of meat production. This practice is supported by many ecologists in Australia such as the Ecological Society of Australia, the Australasian Wildlife Management Society and the Australian Mammal Society. They support the benefits of agricultural production of native animals rather than the introduction of livestock due to the ecological advantages and especially greenhouse gases.

Kangaroos are protected by both state and federal legislation in Australia and ensure harvesting is only conducted in accordance with strict licensing and code of practice.

Kangaroos are shot in the wild by appointed professionally accredited shooters. The shooters are required to kill the animals humanely with a single clean head shot and attach government appointed ear tags to the animals immediately.  The animals are then inspected by the Australian Quarantine and Inspection Service (AQIS) and processed accordingly.

Monthly Dog Subscriptions, Available in Australia

We are pleased to announce that we have now released our Pet Parcels in a monthly subscription product. The subscription system comes in three easy to order monthly subscription parcels for your dog. The parcels vary in sizes starting with the Junior Dog Parcel, secondly the Premium Dog Parcel and at the top of the range the Platinum Dog Parcel. These treat packs ensure that your pets get all the nutrients they require on a daily basis. The process that we use for our products ensures that all the nutrients remain in the meat after the dehydrating process. We use a commercial dehydrating system which extracts the moisture from our products just leaving pure nutrients in the treats.Monthly Dog Boxes

As the premium provider of pet treats in the market you can be assured that you are going to get the best value on our Monthly Subscription. You may think that all treats are equal, though the heat process used in some of the operations actually leaves minimal nutrients in the finished product. Our process takes longer to for the production of your treats though ensures that the product is safe and valuable for your pets.

 

What it means to be Organic

We hear a lot about organic produce and when we think of organic we know that this is naturally a better option for both ourselves and our pets. But many of us do not actually know what this means, in particularly in the production of meats.

Below is a simple breakdown of what it means to be organic.

  • No Growth hormones, no drugs or antibiotics used
  • Animals have year-round access to the outdoors
  • Animals are raised and graze on certified organic pastures
  • Animals are only to be fed certified organic feed

The guidelines ensure the animals are raised in a pure natural manner and also ensure a fulfilling and humane life. This means healthier cleaner produce and therefore reflected in the quality of the meats.

We as humans and pet owners understand the importance of meat as part of a wholesome diet, but are conflicted with the standards of which most meats are produced. As you can see in the life of an organic animal, they are subject to much better living conditions and this means peace of mind when making the switch to organic produce.
