About MLA

Meat & Livestock Australia Limited (MLA) is the marketingresearch and development body for Australia’s red meat and livestock industry. MLA-Membership-graph-Sept-15.png

MLA is a not-for-profit organisation owned by cattle, sheep and goat producers. It is funded by a levy on livestock sales, with the Federal Government providing matching funds for R&D investment.

MLA’s core focus is to deliver value to its 50,000 levy paying members by:

  • growing demand for red meat, and
  • improving profitability, sustainability and global competitiveness.

MLA is a service provider to the red meat industry, not an industry representative body or lobby group.
