SA Sheep Industry Blueprint - Overview
What’s happening?
The South Australian sheep industry has just started work on a plan to drive profitability, innovation and sustainability for the whole industry value chain, called The SA Sheep Industry Blueprint 2015-2020. The key goal is to increase the industry’s productivity and value by 20 per cent by 2020.
Who’s involved?
The SA Sheep Industry Blueprint is an initiative of Livestock SA and the SA Sheep Advisory Group. It started in February when more than 50 SA sheep industry stakeholders and decision-makers met at a workshop to scope the plan and identify key areas for the industry’s growth and development. This initial direction has been followed up by a Blueprint Working Group of 15 members who have met twice to start work on the plan and to appoint a Blueprint Manager.
Why a blueprint?
The blueprint is more than a strategic plan, it will feature a series of collaborative actions and tasks that will lead to outcomes to achieve the vision … is for a sheep, wool and lamb industry that is innovative and progressive and is delivering profit and sustainability to all in the value chain.

Key aims
The blueprint will tackle key issues in a range of areas, such as biosecurity, access to capital, feedback to producers, welfare and environmental advocacy, succession planning and industry communication.
Five key objectives were identified at the scoping for the blueprint to address:
  1. Grow the SA sheep industry’s production and value from $1.48 billion in 2015 to $1.8 billion in 2020 while maintaining international competitiveness.
  2. Develop a united value chain workforce plan from 2015 to 2020 that attracts new and energetic people to the industry.
  3. Support a 20 percent increase in the engagement of quality consultants and advisers with increased use of business decision-support tools.
  4. Act as a conduit for greater research, development and extension collaboration along the value chain at the regional, state and national level and develop a measure of greater adoption and uptake.
  5. Develop a proactive and progressive industry communication plan that, through advocacy and champions, gives greater consumer confidence to increase their demand and engage the whole value chain.
