Who we are
Livestock SA is a not-for-profit organisation representing beef cattle, sheep and goat producers in South Australia.
It is the voice for livestock producers on all livestock-related issues, working to inform government, businesses and the wider community on the contribution of livestock producers to the food and fibre industries.
Established in 2012, Livestock SA is one of six autonomous commodity groups in South Australia and is a member of Primary Producers SA, working with other commodity groups on issues affecting all farmers.
Livestock SA has representatives on the SA Sheep, Cattle and Goat Advisory Groups and nationally, is the South Australian member of the Sheep Producers Australia, WoolProducers Australia, Cattle Council of Australia, Goat Industry Council of Australia and the South East Australian Livestock Exporters Association.
Advocacy and industry assistance through Livestock SA is funded through producer levies on sheep and cattle. The levy money is collected through the SA Sheep and Cattle Industry Funds. The goat industry is working toward establishing a Goat Industry Fund so producers can contribute to development of the industry.
