MLA - Integrity Matters



Welcome to the third edition of Integrity Matters – the e-bulletin that keeps producers informed about the Australian red meat integrity system. 

Changes to the Livestock Production Assurance (LPA) program are now in place. In this edition we address some common questions regarding changes to the program, we hear from producers who share their thoughts on why LPA is important, and feature a video introducing eNVDs and how to access them.  
If you still have questions, visit the LPA website, send an email to, or call the hotline on 1800 683 111.
