In August 2021 the Minister for Primary Industries and Regions, David Basham MP announced a $1million boost for innovative KI recovery projects.

“This new $1 million funding to Livestock SA and Agriculture Kangaroo Island will help deliver new projects which support long-term recovery and resilience. This is recognition that the road to recovery can be a long one and by working with industry we are making sure support is targeted and effective."

Livestock SA and Agriculture KI ran a tender process in September 2021 to seek projects that would benefit farmer groups and help make the community more resilient to improve the ability to respond to events in the future.

On Monday Minister Basham, alongside Jamie Heinrich (AgKI Chairman), announced the approval of twelve projects totaling $976,014 under the funding scheme. Ten of these projects will be administered by Livestock SA in collaboration with third-party applicants who developed project concepts during the tender phase.

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.
