Sheep industry takes steps
The Australian sheep industry is taking steps to demonstrate its credentials in sustainable production by developing a whole-of-industry framework.
The Sheep Sustainability Framework will seek to improve transparency and build trust with the Australian community by aligning industry practices and community expectations.
It will define sustainable sheep production and track annual performance using a series of indicators.
Sheep Producers Australia and Wool Producers Australia, with support from Meat and Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation, are leading the framework’s development.
