Sheep Producers Australia Limited is recruiting for individuals to serve a two-year term as members on the Sheep Producers Australia Policy Council.

Sheep Producers Australia is the National Peak Industry Body for the Australian sheepmeat industry.  Based in Canberra, our purpose is to be a strategic leader working to benefit Australia’s sheep industry to achieve a productive, profitable, and sustainable future. Sheep Producers Australia’s vision is to be a trusted influencer, leader and advisor for Australian sheep producers, industry, and government. 

The Policy Council functions as the engine room of strategic and focused policy and advocacy for the Australian sheep industry and is the mechanism for producers to drive change in their industry.  


The Policy Council is a dynamic, skills-based unit comprising seven State Farming Organisation (SFO) representatives and five independent representatives. 


We are currently recruiting for one SFO representative each from AgForce Queensland (QLD), Pastoralists and Graziers Association (WA), Tasmanian Farmers and Graziers Association (TAS), Livestock SA (SA) and five independent representatives. 


Working with Sheep Producers Australia policy staff, the Policy Council members will ensure that the policy agenda is strategic, disciplined and focuses on key issues impacting the Australian sheep industry. Members will also be empowered to guide the content, direction and monitoring of activities that are closely linked to Red Meat 2030, the Sheep Sustainability Framework and Sheep Producers Australia’s Strategic Plan.  


Applications for the Policy Council Members close at 11.59pm on

Sunday 18 August 2024.
