Livestock 2020 - Big Issues New Partnerships is a new event that will build on outcomes and achievements of the Sheep CRC to engage leading sheep and cattle producers and livestock industry RDE&A service providers. Keynote presenters will identify the big challenges and opportunities facing the sheep and cattle industries in southern Australia over the next 10 to 20 years.
