Australian Cattle Council : Yearbook 2011
19 YEARBOOK 2011 CATTLE COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA highlight the importance of long term planning to protect freight corridors to allow the movement of agricultural commodities to key processing areas and ports. It’s unclear at this stage what regulatory power or financial backing is behind these strategies. As Australia’s population grows and more and more people live and build around key freight routes, ports and processing facilities it will be important to make sure appropriate planning takes place so that growth and development improves the productivity and efficiency of the red meat supply chain, not detract from it. RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT Cattle Council has also been influential in setting up and providing direction and advice to MLA’s new policy research and development program. This new area within MLA that is looking at transport and infrastructure among other issues to help identify opportunities for greater efficiency and cost savings for producers and the broader red meat industry. This program in MLA recognises that in addition to on farm R&D, there are other areas in the red meat supply chain that industry can work on to improve efficiency and eventually improve returns to Australia’s beef cattle producers.
