MLA sees a better year ahead

Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) experts are having high hopes on the development of the sector in 2019. First of all, the latest forecast for weather is quite promising for the next year.
Secondly, there is a growing demand for beef and lamb in the export markets and in the Australian market as well. Last but not least, innovation process could also have a word in the development of the red meat industry. "There are more animal welfare tools including NumNuts for management of pain in sheep during husbandry procedures. Outcomes are in the pipeline from the 10 projects which make up the MLA-led Strategic Partnership for Animal Welfare RD&A", says the MLA outlook for 2019. And also new pasture varieties and feedbase options including tedera, for which some seed will be available in 2018, and new cultivars of leucaena, which are currently being grown for seed buildup could increase the productivity in the farms.
