SA Productivity Commission R&D Inquiry

June 19, 2020

Livestock SA provided input to the commission’s inquiry into research and development outlining key targets from the Sheep and Beef Industry Blueprints.

It acknowledged that the State Government has an objective to lift the sustainable economic growth rate in South Australia to an average of 3% per year. Livestock SA is participating in further developing these sectors in line with this growth agenda but said the need for dedicated R&D for sheep, cattle and goats is essential.
