Bushfire Resources

Fire-affected landholders on Kangaroo Island have access to a new program that encourages innovation in recovery, promoting greater resilience for livestock producers into the future.

This has been made possible through funding from the Commonwealth and South Australian Government who encourage all fire-affected producers with a novel idea or new way of supporting recovery to provide an expression of interest.

Livestock SA and AgKI are partnering to support this program for Kangaroo Island primary producers.

Examples of the types of innovations might include water security, farm infrastructure, pest and weed management, or other creative initiatives that make the farming operations impacted by the fires more resilient and improve the ability to respond to adverse events in the future.

Merit will be placed upon landholder collaboration, co-contribution, innovative approaches, and activities that offer long-term benefits for the island.

Expressions of interest close 15 October 2021 and can be emailed to

Livestock SA has now closed its emergency fodder depots for both the Cudlee Creek (Oakbank Racecourse) and Kangaroo Island (Cape Jervis) fires. Enquiries regarding access to emergency fodder should be made through the appropriate Bushfire Recovery Centre.

Livestock SA’s last delivery via ferry to Kangaroo Island was on Tuesday 25 February 2021. PIRSA’s funding for ferry crossings has now been fully committed in the delivery of donated hay.

Livestock SA in partnership with SA government and a mountain of volunteers and donors have managed to deliver 2,200 tonnes of hay to Kangaroo Island, 1,250 tonnes of hay through Oakbank depot and 450 tonnes to those affected by the Keilira fire.

We extend our deepest gratitude to the amazing people who have been so generous with their money, time, fuel, equipment and feed. We’re generally struck by the integrity which has been shown by South Australian farmers to their peers and equals.

Your mental health is of prime importance and assistance can be found through the following:
