One of the major challenges of the Sheep CRC is to continue the technological transformation of the Australian sheep industry through:
Forty organisations, covering the full length of the sheep supply chain, supported an extension of the highly successful Sheep CRC which was successful in gaining funding from 1 July 2014 - 30 June 2019. The CRC is co-funded under the Commonwealth Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Program.
The importance of meeting these challenges has been recognised by all levels of industry, with sheep breeders, commercial producers, processors, service providers, supermarkets and research agencies all committing significant resources.
This is the most comprehensive group that has ever been assembled to work cooperatively to shape and deliver a livestock research and development program with whole-of-industry benefits.
