Sheep CRC Ltd
ABN: 12 125 726 847
Forty organisations, covering the full length of the sheep supply chain, supported a five year extension of the highly successful Cooperative Research Centre for Sheep Industry Innovation (Sheep CRC). The Sheep CRC exceeded the objectives set by the Commonwealth in 2007 for its seven year research program which ended on 30 June 2014. Click here for a full list of Participants.
The extension application to extend the CRC's term for a further five years was lodged with the Federal Government's CRC Programme during 2013 and was successful in gaining further funding until 30 June 2019. The extension includes plans to enhance monitoring and management of sheep wellbeing, introduce value-based trading of sheep meat, and deliver affordable DNA-based genetic tools.
The CRC Programme supports industry led end-user driven research collaborations to address the major challenges facing Australia. Australia's network of CRCs operates across all sectors of Australia's economy and society. Further information on the CRC Programme can be found at www.business.gov.au
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.
