HOW IS IT FUNDED?

One of Sheep Producers Australia’s six priority areas is building industry capability.

SPA is partnering with Meat & Livestock Australia to deliver LEADERSHIP and CAPACITY BUILDING projects in the SHEEP INDUSTRY.

The funding from MLA supports the continuing professional development of current and emerging industry leaders. This will further enhance industry capacity in strategy and policy development, advocacy and leadership.

With the support of MLA, SPA was also successful in its bid to the Australian Government’s Leadership in Agricultural Industries Fund to help build the Leadersheep Network.
