The Southern Australia Livestock Research Council (SALRC) invites expressions of interest from livestock producers to assist in guiding the Research Development and Adoption (RD&A) agenda in south-eastern Australia. A number of positions across all seven regions (Northern NSW, Southern NSW, Central and Western NSW, Central Vic, Western Vic, South east Vic & Tasmania, and South Australia) are vacant or up for re-appointment.  

SALRC is an independent, incorporated association and one of three national research Councils setup to provide recommendations on Research, Development & Adoption (RD&A) priorities and planning for grass-fed beef and sheepmeat producers and R&D professionals throughout Australia.

One Regional Committee Chair position is available in South Australia. SALRC’s Regional Chairs lead established teams comprising producers and other RD&A stakeholders representing key grass-fed beef and sheepmeat production areas of south-eastern Australia.

Positions are also available for Regional Committee Members who will work closely with their respective Regional Committee Chair in providing a critical interface between RD&A providers and the needs of red meat and livestock producers. 

SALRC Chairman, Ian Rogan from the Central Tablelands region of NSW, believes that the “producers representing our red meat industries on the seven SALRC regional committees across New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania, Queensland and South Australia, play crucial roles in determining priorities for investment of R&D levies paid by sheep and cattle producers across Australia.”

The Terms of all positions will commence following the SALRC AGM in September and are open in each region to any grass-fed beef and/or sheepmeat producer who reside in the respective SALRC region. The selection committee will consider expressions of interest for the Regional Chair role on 24 July 2023 and Committee Member positions on 31 July 2023.
