GrainFC - 300x197.jpg

Industry is represented by: Australian Lot Feeders' Association

Name of the levy: Lot-fed livestock transaction levy

Who collects the levy: Australian Government Department of Agriculture and Water Resources – Levies

How we consult on where your levy is invested

Red Meat 2030 provides high-level strategic direction for research, development, adoption and marketing investments. The Australian Lot Feeders’ Association (ALFA) and MLA then work together to develop research, development and marketing strategies along with programs and projects funded through the grainfed levy.

Each year ALFA conducts an online survey of all grainfed levy payers to gather feedback on such programs and projects, taking into account research and development and marketing strategic plans, expenditure priorities and reserve levels. Survey responses are used to provide feedback to MLA.
