Past research identified a significant gap in profitability between the ‘top 20%’ and the average sheep producer of between $20 and $37 per sry sheep equivalent. Evidence showed this gap was due to the adoption of best practices by the top 20% of sheep producers.
A long history of investment in research and development by the wool and sheepmeat industries means that much of the information, technologies and tools to allow sheep producers to significantly increase sustainability already exist, although they tend to be disaggregated and difficult for sheep producers to source quickly.
