Australian Cattle Council : Yearbook 2015
in that it is not being limited in scope to just Australian livestock. If implemented LGAP provides a further step up from ESCAS for exporters as well as a pathway for facilities anywhere in the world to demonstrate their compliance at least to OIE international animal welfare standards. Research, Development and Extension remains critical to the sustainability, productivity and competitiveness of the industry. In the 2014/15 financial year, over $7 million was invested by LiveCorp and MLA with matching Australian Government contribution (for R&D) for activities in animal health and welfare, supply chain efficiency and performance and market access and trade development. As a result of the industry’s investment in RD&E mortality rates within the industry have declined substantially over time. The mortality rates of cattle exported sea have historically been very low. Since 1995 the total annual mortality rate has varied between 0.1pc - 0.42pc and recent mortality rates have been closer to 0.1pc. The most important challenge for the livestock export trade is to engage with the Australian public and demonstrate actions that highlight our vision and commitment to improving our animal welfare practices. Until such time as we narrow the gap between the industry performance, public perceptions and expectations, we face increased social, political and regulatory risk. This is a long-term challenge and our focus goes far beyond the immediate political cycle. Finally, ALEC is grateful for the strong working relationship it has with CCA and producers around the country. We hope further collaboration in the future will support growth of the live cattle trade to benefit all industry participants.
