SHEEP producers have until the end of the month to contribute to the latest wool and sheep meat industry survey to help monitor flock and producer intentions.
The Meat & Livestock Australia and Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) wool and sheep meat survey is open until February 28 2017.
MLA said the continuing productivity improvements in the Australian sheep meat industry highlight the importance of monitoring production and producer intentions, assisting producers to make more efficient decisions based on data and evidence.
The results from the survey continue to accurately represent production trends since 2010 and provide a strong foundation for MLA’s and AWI’s industry forecasting and market information analysis, MLA said.
With this in mind, MLA and AWI are asking for producers’ time and considered responses to the survey. The more producers responding provides us with more reliable data, MLA said. Survey responses are aggregated with the replies from other participants to create regional, state and national wool and sheep meat industry data. Individual responses remain strictly confidential.
