Forum focussed on Rangeland goats
A Rangeland Goat Management Forum was hosted by the SA Arid Lands Landscape Board in Port Augusta in November.
The forum involved nearly 50 key representatives from stakeholder groups including neighbouring landscape boards, State and Commonwealth government, industry peak bodies, market processors, First Nations partners and pastoral land managers.
The group came together to engage in an important conversation on the current state of play in the rangelands for management, markets and how best to tackle the current challenges, opportunities and obligations applicable to unmanaged rangeland goats.
A series of recommendations and proposed actions will be developed with a strong commitment to a continued statewide approach to managing rangeland goats in SA.
The forum was funded by the SAAL Landscape Board, the Northern and Yorke Landscape Board, Eyre Peninsula Landscape Board, Murraylands and Riverland Landscape Board and the Pastoral Board. It was supported by Meat & Livestock Australia, Department for Primary Industries and Regions and Livestock SA.
