WORK is now well advanced in building a bold new Meat Industry Strategic Plan (MISP 2030).
MISP 2030 is the plan for the Australian red meat industry – from farm to feedlot, to processor, to retailer and live exporter – to guide every dollar of levy investments as the industry tackles its biggest challenges and opportunities in the coming decade of change.
Following a series of focus groups in Canberra last month, the MISP 2030 emerging themes and programs of work are this month being taken to stakeholders in the frontline of industry at six regional locations around Australia to road-test the preliminary thinking.
As part of this process, a digital stakeholder consultation process is also being held via webinars, to provide a channel for engagement for people who cannot attend one of the six regional gatherings.
Stakeholders from across the red meat industry are invited to participate in a short online session hosted by FutureBeef to seek views and opinions on these programs and how best to implement them to help the industry.
The one-hour webinar will be repeated over three days, providing the broadest possible opportunity for stakeholders to participate:
- Tuesday, 30 July – 7.30pm AEST
- Wednesday 31 July – 12.30pm AEST
- Thursday 1 August – 9.30pm AEST

the MISP fails the PUB test
the guiding principle is that if there is a compulsory levy then the organisation needs to be responsible to and elected by the levy payers. If not then the levy should be voluntary
the AWI model is democratic they the wool levy payers even have a say on levy rate . And if a levy payer doesn’t like their policies the levy payers can stand for the board.
I do support Roger Fletchers concept that the wool and sheep meat levy payers should form one entity to represent the sheep industry levy payers
Wally Peart’s warning about snouts in the trough is spot we only need one democratic entity elected by the beef industry levy payers
The processors, lotfeeders, live exporters, grass fatteners, and sheep and goat producers have many areas of conflicting interest. They will always vote according to their hip-pocket nerve. Each time we changed in the past, it is arguable that we went backwards. Beware the cost of change. When we changed from the AMLC to the MLA, it cost a fortune.
