The major challenge of the Sheep CRC is to continue the technological transformation of the Australian sheep industry through the use of cutting edge research, to enhance sheep wellbeing, introduce value-based trading of sheepmeat and deliver affordable technologies for DNA-based genetic improvement.
Some 38 organisations, covering the full length of the sheep supply chain, supported an extension of the highly successful Sheep CRC. The Sheep CRC exceeded the objectives set by the Commonwealth for its seven year research program which ended on 30 June 2014. An extension application was lodged with the Federal Government and was successful in gaining funding for a further 5 years from 1 July 2014 - 30 June 2019.
“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 to the plan. 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.”
