Usage of MLA education and extension resources – Creative Commons (CC)

MLA and its partners have funded the development of education and extension resources (including manuals, tools and calculators) to benefit Australian red meat producers. To improve the accessibility of these resources to industry, MLA and its partners have adopted an ‘easy access creative commons’ approach. Below is a list of resources that are available via creative commons licencing.
