LIVESTOCK

The Livestock Council aims to support and grow a strong and vibrant domestic supply chain for cattle, sheepmeat and wool.

The Livestock Council is proactive via representation on a number of peak industry councils on a national level, and uses this platform to advocate on behalf of members on all livestock issues.

We advocate for transparency and integrity in the domestic supply chain that aims to allow producers to be competitive and grow, and for the promotion of animal welfare.

Livestock producers are in an excellent position to understand and promote animal welfare and we want to improve public perceptions and help people understand the stewardship role that farmers take with animals.

On a daily basis, the Livestock Section represents farmers on a wide range of industry issues including: live export, animal health and welfare, biosecurity, best practice techniques, research, development and investment, industry promotion, education and training and state and national representation.
