Rack of Kangaroo - 8 Bone Frenched

The ventral portion of the flap is removed at a specified distance from the eye muscle. Chine and featherbones are removed, ribs are Frenched trimmed to approximately 5cm from the eye muscle.

Kangaroo numbers are now increasing greater than ever before. Due to increase in kangaroo numbers it has become necessary to set a commercially harvest quota to a record 8,800,000 for 2014 of the population estimated of around 54,000,000 to prevent economic and environmental damage. Strict controls ensure that no more than the quota number is actually harvested, in fact in recent years the harvest has been around 1,600,000per year making the kangaroo industry one of the most sustainable renewable resources in the world.

Through careful management the Australian Kangaroo Industry has developed to its current level where Australia processes millions of tonnes of high quality meat as well as a large range of leather products. Each Australian state that commercially harvests kangaroos must have in place a Federal Government approved management plan. These plans must be updated every 3 years and aerial surveys of the population are conducted every year. After assessing the total populations and trends in population numbers, a sustainable quota is set for the number of kangaroos that can be harvested for that year. Kangaroos are harvested only from primary producing properties in Australia.
