Blueprint launched at livestock industry event... with Chairman Allan Piggott

The SA Sheep Industry Blueprint marked a milestone when it was launched on April 12 before a crowd of about 190 producers at the Adelaide Hills Convention Centre in Hahndorf.
A strategy that aims to drive sheep industry productivity to a 20 percent increase by 2020, the Blueprint is set to boost the SA sheep industry’s production and value from $1.48 billion in 2015 to $1.8 billion by 2020.
The launch was a landmark day, heralding a new, united and coordinated push to boost the industry’s productivity.

It is an outstanding opportunity to secure a bright future for SA’s world-leading sheep and wool industries.
