Welcome

Over forty organisations, from all sectors of the sheep supply chain, are working together with the Sheep CRC to make the possible practical. The three programs of research are:

  • Enhanced sheep wellbeing and productivity;
  • Quality based sheep meat value chains; and
  • Faster affordable genetic gain.

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.

The CRC is co-funded under the Commonwealth Government’s Cooperative Research Centres Programme.
