SYDNEY， Feb. 13 (Xinhua) -- Australia's largest cattle empire is set to become hi-tech under a new ownership consortium made up of Australian and Chinese investors.
The new owners of S Kidman cattle empire， including China's Shanghai CRED， have agreed to introduce new technology to the cattle stations to streamline production.
The push for the introduction of the technology was led by Gina Rinehart， Australia's richest woman and majority stake holder in the consortium， and will be similar to technology already used by Rinehart's Hancock Prospecting.
Gui Guojie， principal of Shanghai CRED， agreed with Rinehart at the meeting in Melbourne that technology such as remote monitoring of cattle and walkover weighing for livestock should be introduced at Kidman's stations which encompass 101，000 square-km of pastoral land.
"This increased investment in technology approach will involve more training and some cultural change at Kidman， as the company gears to become one of the best cattle companies in Australia，" Hancock Prospecting said in a statement on Monday.
Before the board meeting， Rinehart travelled to Kidman properties including stations in the Northern Territory (NT)， South Australia (SA)， Western Australia (WA) and Queensland to show staff the technological improvements.
"Mrs. Rinehart was delighted that this was met with great enthusiasm from many of the Kidman station managers for such changes，" Hancock said.
Hancock， which Rinehart chairs， said the Kidman stations were currently running herds well below their usual average but is still one of the biggest cattle operations in Australia with a herd of 150，000.
It said the investment in technology would transform and improve the Kidman stations.
Rinehart purchased the pastoral portfolio， which accounts for 1.3 percent of Australia's total land area， with Shanghai CRED in December 2016 for 300 million U.S. dollars.
The consortium has since flagged that exporting top quality beef to China would be a major focus of Kidman's new strategy.

CANBERRA, Aug. 15 (Xinhua) -- The dual-citizenship problem plaguing Australia's Parliament might have claimed its biggest victim yet Nike Air Force 1 Cheap Outlet , with Deputy Prime Minister Barnaby Joyce now under scrutiny for his links to New Zealand, but this latest revelation might have one upside: the rewriting and updating of Australia's Constitution.
A constitutional lawyer has told Xinhua that Australia's Constitution, first drafted in the 1890s, may be "outdated," meaning it may no longer represent modern Australia - one which is overwhelmingly welcoming to those of different backgrounds.
On Monday Nike Air Force 1 Clearance , it was revealed that the Deputy PM's father was a New Zealand citizen, meaning Joyce, who was born in rural New South Wales, automatically and "unwittingly" became a "Kiwi" under New Zealand citizenship law.
The revelation means that Joyce has violated the infamous Section 44 of the Australian Constitution, which states that anyone who "is a subject or a citizen of a foreign power ... shall be incapable of being chosen or of sitting as a senator or a member of the House of Representatives."
He finds himself in exactly the same position as Greens Senators Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters Cheap Nike SF Air Force 1 , and Nationals Senator Matt Canavan, all of whom were found to have been dual citizens in recent weeks. Waters and Ludlum chose to resign, while Canavan has stepped back from his Cabinet position, pending a High Court ruling.
But this string of controversies surrounding Australia's Parliamentary dual-citizenship laws sits uneasily alongside a fundamental aspect of Australian society: multiculturalism.
Australia's national anthem proudly declares there are "boundless plains to share," while the nation has accepted migrants from all parts of the world since the Gold Rush of the 1850s.
Major Australian cities have some of the biggest and most vibrant "Chinatowns" in the world Nike SF Air Force 1 Clearance , Melbourne is home to the second largest Greek population outside of Athens, Italians migrated en masse in the middle parts of the 19th century, while more recently, those from the Middle East, Vietnam and parts of Africa have all been welcomed with open arms.
It's is baffling Nike Lunar Force 1 Clearance , then, that prospective politicians - those who wish to make a difference to the society in which they grew up - may be ineligible for being a dual citizen.
Even a leading constitutional lawyer has expressed her reservations at the current state of Australia's dual citizenship laws; speaking to Xinhua on Tuesday, Professor Cheryl Saunders from the University of Melbourne said there was no doubt that making amendments to the "out of date" Section 44 would be considered in the future.
"There have been previous proposals to amend Section 44, and it is quite possible that these will be revisited at some stage," Saunders told Xinhua in an interview.
"The world was very different when Section 44 was drafted . Cheap T-shirts Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap Sports Jerseys Cheap Shirts Cheap NCAA Jerseys Cheap Hoddies Cheap Adidas NHL Jerseys Cheap NFL Shirts Cheap Baseball Jerseys Cheap Hats
