Seasonal and market conditions producer survey extended to next week

Sheep Producers Australia, Cattle Australia, and Western Dairy have made the decision to extend the 2024 WA Seasonal and Market Conditions Producer Survey*, now closing next Wednesday 8 May 2024.

“We have been contacted by producers seeking additional time to respond to the survey due to their current on farm priorities.

“Producers want to have the opportunity to provide their perspective, to be part of the process, and to inform what assistance and support is required not only in the short term but for there to be planning in place to support producers for the long term.” Bonnie Skinner CEO Sheep Producers Australia.

A report will be generated based on the data that is received by COB today to inform the Dry Season Taskforce’s (Taskforce) meeting this coming Friday.

All additional data collected will be provided to the Taskforce in a second report.

“The survey will help inform the Taskforce and assist the government in better understanding the impact the dry season and low market prices are having on livestock producers and their management decisions. The data this survey is collecting is critical to help inform the right assistance and support for WA producers.” Dr Chris Parker CEO Cattle Australia. 

Sheep Producers Australia and Cattle Australia will continue to closely monitor the situation and advocate for ongoing and immediate support for our WA producers.
