The Australian Livestock Markets' Association is the peak national advocacy body working to improve the long term sustainability of the saleyard and lairage industry in Australia.
The auction system that operates in saleyards is an important component of the Australian agriculture sector with transactions setting the current market benchmark in quality and price.
Nominations now open
Does your saleyard or lairage consider positive animal health environments paramount to your operation? Has your operation implemented innovative practices or infrastructure to better manage animal health outcomes? Then why not nominate.
ALMA is calling for nominations for its National Animal Welfare Award. Nominations close 5pm Friday 30 June 2017.
Disappointed at mandatory eRFiD decision
ALMA has expressed disappointment at the Victorian Government's announcement to mandate electronic radio frequency identification (eRFID) on all sheep and goats born in Victoria after 1 January 2017 and has urged the Hon Barnaby Joyce MP, the Federal Minister for Agriculture, to intervene.
