Doomadgee Bush Piggery Feasibility Study

A feasibility assessment for the re-establishment of a piggery in Doomadgee

Year: 2016

Location: Doomadgee, QLD

Client: Federal Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet


Premise was engaged to conduct a feasibility assessment and develop a CBA-based business model for the re-establishment of a piggery in Doomadgee, near the Northern Territory border in North Queensland.

The work involved:

  • A site visit to establish the condition of the existing piggery infrastructure
  • Desktop research to gauge the marketability of a semi-wild pig product from Doomadgee (including costs for infrastructure, ration, transport, freight, and operation)
  • Development of a detailed CBA showing the net present value of the facility over a 5 year operating period
  • Development of a feasibility report detailing findings of the assessment
      • Premise successfully determined the break-even price required for the product in order to make the proposal economically feasible in terms of capital and operational expenditure.
