The Australian sheep and lamb industry provides premium products to domestic and international consumers and has a hard-earned reputation for fresh, safe and nutritious lamb and sheepmeat. Sheep Producers Australia (SPA) represents and promotes the interests of sheep producers to government and industry to position the Australian sheep and lamb sector for future success.
Sheep Producers Australia works to enhance the productivity, profitability and sustainability of the Australian sheep and lamb industry in six key areas.
The Sheepmeat Industry Strategic Plan 2015-20 (SISP 2020) sets out the sheepmeat industry’s strategic priorities for the coming five years. The plan has been developed with a focus on 2030 – because certain important decisions to be made now will only start to exert a major influence some years after the life of this plan.
Sheep Producers Australia is governed by a skills-based board of up to nine directors and has four policy sub-committees which make policy recommendations for consideration. This Governance Architecture fact sheet outlines how SPA operates.
