A domestic and export lamb industry with a combined value of at least $2 billion by 2000 and $2.8 billion by 2005.
Changing consumer and industry attitudes and behaviours; increased demand for lamb products; broad industry participation in extension activities; widespread adoption of information and tools, and on-farm implementation of R&D outcomes.
The $639 million invested by MRC, AMLC and MLA between 1991 and 2007 has had a positive influence on lamb production, industry and consumer attitudes, contributing to increased turn-off of larger, leaner carcases; increased consumer demand; higher returns; and $1.39 to $2.39 billion in industry value added at the farm gate.
