Livestock Productivity Partnership
The Livestock Productivity Partnership (LPP) is a collaborative research and development (R&D) partnership involving MLA Donor Company (MDC), NSW Department of Primary Industries, University of New England and CSIRO, aimed at boosting livestock productivity and developing new R&D capacity.
The goal of the LPP is to contribute to a national increase in productivity improvement in the livestock industry from 1% to 2.5% per year by developing regional and system-specific feedbase options, and new animal phenotyping and farm management tools, primarily for producers in NSW and southern and central Queensland.
Eleven research projects worth a total of $35 million over five years have commenced under the partnership.
