Livestock SA supports Wool Producer Australia’s submission to AWEX’s Review of the National Wool Declaration. In particular, Livestock SA would like ‘Ceased Mulesing’ to be removed from the NWD form, as this category is no longer relevant. Removing ‘Ceased mulesing’ will make the NWD form more straight-forward and user friendly and it would mean only three categories would be listed on the NWD, Non mulesed, Mulesed with pain relied and Mulesed.Read more

Livestock SA has previously made submissions on Phase Two (Rural Areas) and Phase Three (Urban Areas) of the Draft Planning and Design Code Consultation. As part of these submissions, Livestock SA raised the conflict between primary production industries and believes this issue is still not addressed in the revised Planning and Design Code. Livestock SA believes if we are to protect and grow existing broadacre agriculture and avoid conflict with other agricultural pursuits, there needs to be policies in place ensuring that with any change, it becomes the responsibility of the landowner making the change, including to more intensive agriculture, viticulture and horticulture, to provide the appropriate buffers and anything else that may be required. Livestock SA also believes where broadacre land becomes non-viable due to restrictions imposed by approved new activities, particularly in the peri-urban zone, needs to be addressed further and remains concerned that broadacre livestock production has already been virtually squeezed out of this zone, with a resultant loss of economic production for the State.Read more
