Livestock SA regularly makes submissions and offers comments to governments and other organisations on issues impacting members.
Livestock SA is concerned that kangaroo numbers are becoming an increasing issue for landowners across South Australia, in particular for pastoralists. Livestock SA believes the State can not rely on commercial harvesting to ensure kangaroo numbers are lowered to a level where they are not detrimental to the landscape and the community as a whole. We believe that a roundtable of stakeholders needs to be held to tackle the issue of how to manage the current overabundance of kangaroos.
Livestock SA is concerned that the original Eyre Peninsula Water Demand and Supply Statement released in 2011 and its subsequent annual reviews make little mention of livestock. In developing a new statement, Livestock SA believes the importance of the industry to the area and its potential for future growth needs to be considered in more depth.
