A new process will be in place for Sheep Industry Fund expenditure in 2020-21. A transition to this new process is occurring during 2019-20.
This new process, recommended by industry, will create more opportunities for co-investment and build greater accountability to industry.
The new process will see Livestock SA establish three subcommittees:
- Selection Committee
- Cattle Industry Fund Board
- Sheep Industry Fund Board.
The Selection Committee will make recommendations regarding the membership of the Sheep Industry Fund Board. Once the Sheep Industry Fund Board is established, the SA Sheep Advisory Group will no longer be required.
The Industry Fund boards will make recommendations regarding fund expenditure, and Livestock SA will submit these recommendations to the Minister for Primary Industries and Regional Development for approval. Following approval, payments will be made from the Sheep Industry Fund to Livestock SA who will disburse funds according to the recommendations of the Sheep Industry Fund Board.
