Hi All,

Funding is available for livestock producer groups to run local projects to validate and demonstrate the business value of integrating new technologies and on-farm management practices into local farming systems.

Meat & Livestock Australia’s (MLA) Producer Demonstration Sites (PDS) program provides funding of up to $25,000 a year for a maximum of three years, for up to ten beef cattle projects, five sheep projects and two goat projects that can commence in 2018.

This is the second round of MLA’s PDS open call process for 2017-18, with seven new PDS projects awarded funding earlier this year in Western Australia, Victoria, New South Wales and Tasmania.
