To support this goal, South Australia’s sheep industry, through the Sheep Industry Fund Board, have identified the following investment priorities that are the basis for SA Sheep Industry Fund investment:

  1. Animal Health
  2. Traceability
  3. Predator Control
  4. Advocacy
  5. Industry development

All sheep owners in South Australia contribute $0.67 per head to the Sheep Industry Fund when 5 or more sheep are sold for $5 per head or more.

This contribution currently comprises 2 parts:

  • a general contribution of $0.55
  • a dog fence rebuild contribution of $0.12.

Total levy contributions to the fund are approximately $4,000,000 annually.

Livestock SA is responsible for the administrative functions of the fund and the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development is the signatory.

The Sheep Industry Fund Board advises the Minister on the use of the Fund. A list of current members is available here.
