MLA’s Strategic Plan 2025

MLA’s new Strategic Plan 2025 sets out the strategic direction and the investment priorities which will contribute to the profitability, sustainability and global competitiveness of the red meat and livestock industry.

Alert-icon.pngMLA is currently working on a method to close the missing data series of livestock indicators caused by COVID-19 related disruptions to market reporting between March and June 2020. The replacement data will be statistically tested before being publicly released. A replacement to the missing data will enable the industry to examine livestock price trends and complete future market analysis without any missing data periods. MLA will advise if and when this data is available.
