Sheepmeat Council : Sheepmeat 2012
40 SHEEPMEAT COUNCIL OF AUSTRALIA ANNUAL MUSTER 2012 training courses for AQIS accredited veterinarians (AAV) were held. In response to the implementation of ESCAS there was an increased emphasis on development and delivery of extension material during 2011/12. The R&D program delivered Standard Operating Procedures for both cattle and sheep in overseas markets as well as specific work instructions to assist with training and operator compliance. Projects were also commenced on the development of DVD training materials, in line with ESCAS requirements on animal handling, transport, feedlot, lairage and slaughter. In the Middle East-North Africa region in-market work continues in assessing and monitoring the impacts of high heat and humidity and developing management strategies to improve animal welfare and performance of livestock. Australia's livestock export industry continues to provide a strong return to the Australian economy - an average of A$1 billion a year in export earnings for Australia since 2005-06. A recent report by the Centre of International Economics (CIE) found that 74%, or A$742 million, of these earnings go directly to livestock producers. The CIE evaluation confirmed the significant flow-on benefits the livestock export industry provides to livestock producers and regional economies, as well as the importance of the live trade in providing producers with access to the broadest possible range of markets. It found that without the trade, national saleyard prices would be 4% lower for grass fed cattle, 7.6% lower for lambs and 17.6% lower for older sheep, confirming that Australia's livestock export industry provides benefits for all producers. A focus on animal welfare and meeting market demands drive Australia's livestock export industry. Our objective is to provide our overseas customers and their customers with the best livestock in the world.
