Report to stakeholders

Herefords in paddock

This ‘Report to stakeholders’ reports against the pillars and priorities outlined in MLA’s Strategic Plan 2016–2020 and provides transparency around the organisation’s actual activities and outcomes.

MLA objectives and planned activities in 2017–18 were directed by its Annual Investment Plan 2017–18. All these activities enable MLA to deliver on its Strategic Plan. MLA regards the Annual Investment Plan 2017–18 as the second year of the MLA Strategic Plan 2016–2020.

The MLA Strategic Plan 2016–2020 is aligned to the Meat Industry Strategic Plan 2020 and the Australian Government’s Science and Research Priorities and its Rural Research, Development and Extension Priorities. The MLA Strategic Plan was released in April 2016, following the publication of the Meat Industry Strategic Plan 2020 in September 2015.
