Three times a year, MLA and AWI run a joint survey to collect sheepmeat industry livestock numbers and lamb production expectations. Production and producer intentions are regularly monitored to generate better forward looking information that allow producers to make the most efficient decisions, with the results of these surveys forming the basis of MLA's Industry Projections. The survey opens 3 times a year and sheep producers are encouraged to participate!
The February 2019 MLA and AWI wool and sheep meat survey is now open and will run until the 28th of February 2019. You can find the survey here.
