The MLA/AWI sheepmeat and wool survey is released three times a year. The February wave is in progress, closing Sunday 28 February.

The survey results provide industry with insights regarding breeds, wool and meat production, lamb marking rates and purchasing intentions, on a national and regional basis.

Key insights from the October 2020 survey included:

  • national merino marking rates of 92%
  • more than 90% of producers intend to either increase or maintain their flock
  • Almost a quarter of producers intend to buy more ewes and ewe lambs to help rebuild their flocks
  • Non-merino lambs account for 44% of all lambs

All survey responses are deidentified and aggregated. National and state results are published on the MLA website once the survey process is completed.

It is important to have a large response for the most accurate information.

All participants who complete the survey will go into the running to win a $1,000 fuel card.
