Membership At the end of June, more than 1000 producers had signed up as members. This follows a membership campaign that started in December 2013, and compares favourably with Grain Producers SA which at the time of their second AGM had 618 members. The eventual aim is for a set proportion of the sheep and cattle levies to automatically fund Livestock SA, estimated at this stage to be 5 cents a head for sheep. This is still being negotiated with the State Government though in-principle support has been given following widespread support from South Australian livestock producers. The year ahead Livestock SA is now the opportunity for all South Australian livestock producers to have their say on the people and policies that best represent them. The first AGM was held on August 29 and was a joint industry forum with SCA. LIVESTOCK SA -- ONE YEAR ON IN NEW ADVOCACY STRUCTURE
