The NT's isolated cattle stations are running short of supplies.
The pick up delivery services offered by supermarkets closed down almost two weeks ago because of panic buying.
"The people in the bush don't have the option of whipping down to the corner store to secure a few odds and ends," NT Cattlemen's Association chief executive Ashley Manicaros said.
The association has called on the Federal Government to intervene and even involve the Australian Defence Force if necessary to sold the supply problems.
Mr Manicaros said the Federal Government must order the major supermarket chains to solve the supply chain issues affecting cattle stations.
Even the involvement of the National Farmers Federation had failed to sort the issue, he said.
"The Prime Minister has got to intervene here and bang some heads together at the major supermarkets," Mr Manicaros said.
"Someone in a capital city has shut off this service without a clue as to the impacts and here we are seeing the consequences of it despite claims the matter is being addressed."
The association has supplied a list of all cattle stations in the NT and the regions from which they are normally serviced including those from border locations who may be receiving stores from nearby regional townships like Mount Isa.
"If the supermarkets are not capable of delivering for the bush then the Prime Minister should engage the ADF to do the job," Mr Maniacaros said.
"This is primarily driven by a failure of logistics mixed with the ridiculous panic buying happening in the major cities."
"This has got to be addressed. We are not talking about this affecting one or two people but we are talking properties with up to 50 people on them."
