Sheepmeat Council : Sheepmeat 2015 2016
22 SHEEPMEAT COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA ANNUAL MUSTER 2015-16 Sheepmeat Industry Strategic Plan 2015-2020 Preview/Objectives (continued) livestock and product assurance throughout the supply chain integrated and effectively communicated through maintained and enhanced integrity systems. Theme 8 – Production efficiency in farms and in intensive finishing systems There are good opportunities to improve efficiency on farm and the activities in this theme aim to reduce the cost of on-farm production ($/kg liveweight) by 1.5% by 2020 and 5% by 2030. This will be achieved through increasing livestock productivity through new research and systems support to improve farm businesses. Measures of success in this area are: • Marking rates are increased by 5 percentage points and ewe mortality rates are decreased by 1 percentage point. • The rate of genetic gain across the national flock is 2% per annum. • There is a 12.5% increase in average live weight gain per day across the national lamb flock. It is estimated that an annual investment of $10.5m will deliver a net increase in industry income of $101m by 2020 ($558 by 2030). The overall benefit cost ratio is 2.1:1 at 2020 (4.9:1 at 2030). Themes 9 & 10 – Processing and live export productivity Active and profitable processing and live export sectors are critical to the success of the broader sheepmeat industry. Both the processing and live export sectors have strategic and operational plans with which SISP 2020 must integrate seamlessly. The key interface with the processing sector relates to improved feedback loops regarding information on carcase traits and animal health issues and a scientific review and recommendations to improve the sheepmeat language. Work with the live export sector includes supporting the development of an assurance program to enhance in-market outcomes and improving animal health and welfare outcomes throughout the value chain. Theme 11 – Capability and capacity for the industry’s future It is essential for the future of the sheepmeat industry to build capability and capacity. This will be done by developing skills and leaders to support the industry, ensure that there is sustainable resourcing for key industry programs and structures and by identifying key industry risks and then developing plans and communication protocols that can be immediately and effectively enacted. Only with improved capability and capacity can the industry achieve the outcomes of SISP 2020 and future plans so it is imperative to achieve the key performance indicators as follows: • The sheep industry maintains a mechanism for R,D&E collaboration which includes commercial companies, state and federal government and industry funding. • Management plans and protocols for emergency animal disease, food safety and other issues are in place. • Formal governance training is undertaken by industry leaders. • Monitoring, evaluation, reporting and plan refinement. SISP 2020 is a living document so it is important for the plan to be refined or modified as circumstances and the operating environment dictate. There will be a mid-year review of the plan incorporating any refinements or modifications and a final evaluation will commence in 2019 prior to the commencement of the development of SISP 2025.
