Description
The venture contributed substantially to Australian agriculture and it legacy provides some key avenues for further studies about foreign investment, animal welfare, sheep genetics and other subjects.

Summary
This paper describes the decade over which Hassad Australia (HA) developed to become one of the largest sheep and grain producers in Australia. Initially focussed on a preferred type of meat and some grain, the latter enterprise was to assume increased importance over time. It represented a major investment in personnel, technical services, equipment and supporting systems that served a large and sophisticated network of properties across five Australian states. Focussing on Awassi-style sheep, wheat, barley and canola production, successive policy changes in Qatar reduced emphasis on direct production for food security in favour of responsible maximization of profit, and ultimately to the majority of the enhanced properties being merged into managed agricultural funds that released Qatar from direct management responsibilities. The venture contributed substantially to Australian agriculture and it legacy provides some key avenues for further studies about foreign investment, animal welfare, sheep genetics and other subjects. This paper summarizes some aspects of the enterprises history using publicly available resources.

Excerpt
Overall, the Hassad investment provided a useful case study of the benefits of foreign investment in a rule-of-law agricultural-exporting country that is in need of agricultural capital investment, such as Australia. Outlined in the introduction, and in a paper by CEO Tom McKeon during the acquisition and production phases, the history of Hassad Australia might well have demonstrated further benefits had policy not changed in Qatar. However, the different policy phases provide a useful case study about ways that a wealthy nation can approach food security through asset purchase, management, production and financial mechanisms. In addition to its case study benefits, three areas of further beneficial research from this experience have been mentioned through this paper; detailed analysis of the extensive genetic database produced by the sophisticated genetics program, documentation and extension of the management system developed for improved animal welfare, and objective analysis of feral camels.
