Skills Centre, St George
With the renewed and growing interest in sheep and the opportunities to run them in Queensland, the state is poised for a re-emergence of a sheep industry.
However individual sheep enterprise is best served by having, within easy reach, a sheep industry made up of many producers, buyers for product, suppliers of genetics and the necessary services providing expertise from nutrition to marketing, labour services to logistics and … the list goes on …
Growing the Industry to Grow the Enterprises …
An industry is made up of many parts. For the sheep industries in Queensland, many of their elements went into significant decline when the sheep left. The challenge for all of us is to bring this back!
One of the greatest losses is knowledge – generations of knowledge around sheep management, corporate knowledge on how to service sheep enterprises and how to best manage sheep enterprises in Queensland has either left the industry or has been diluted. But there is plenty of knowledge left …
The purpose of “Facing the Future with Sheep”
Is to build and keep rebuilding the networks that make an industry function and within which an individual enterprise can thrive. We want to examine the many sheep economies and address a number of perceived barriers a return to sheep pose for producers.
The format for the day will be a series of open forum discussions – we will hear short presentations from a group of speakers on a subject who will then lead a forum discussion on the subject.
Topics for the Day
We have created a bit of a stir with this day – plenty of interest and lots of favourable comment. We think Queensland is poised for a sheep resurgence, and a lot of other people seem to agree .
