Laying the foundation for growth

04 January 2016

What growth rates can you expect from young rangeland animals?

Do you want access to more information about the markets so you can better select the animals you’re sending to slaughter or for live export?

These questions form the basis of some of the research and targets industry is looking to have in place in the next five years. This ‘roadmap’ is being articulated in the draft Goatmeat and Livestock Industry Strategic Plan 2015-2020 being developed by the Goat Industry Council of Australia (GICA) and Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA).

The purpose of the plan is to inform industry investment and growth and to provide a roadmap for industry development by outlining a clear set of achievable goals.

Some elements of the plan are still being developed, including for example the key performance indicators.

MLA and GIGA welcome your feedback on the draft plan, what may be missing and what targets are reasonable.

Please send your feedback to MLA’s Goat Industry Project Manager Julie Petty T: 07 3620 5225 or jpetty@mla.com.au by 30 May.

The draft plan will be reviewed in full by GICA at their next meeting (at the end of April) and will be published in June 2015. Feedback supplied after this meeting will be forwarded to GICA.
