Consultative Committees

The Cattle Council of Australia has four consultative committees that are responsible for providing policy advice to the Council.

Committee Focus MISP Pillar
Animal health, welfare, biosecurity and environment Consumer and community support 1
Research, development and adoption Productivity and profitability 2
Marketing, market access and trade Market growth and diversification 3
Industry systems and food safety  Supply chain integrity and efficiency 4
Leadership and collaborative culture (CCA Board) Leadership, industry culture and industry capability 5

The focus of each committee was realigned in 2016 following the development of the Meat Industry Strategic Plan (MISP) and Beef Industry Strategic Plan (BISP2020), to reflect the four pillars of the MISP. The Cattle Council Board is responsible for a fifth foundation pillar. The changes allow the committees to work directly with MLA and other service providers to achieve the KPIs set out in the MISP and BISP.

The committees were formally implemented in 2013 and play an important role in the policy decisions the Council makes, which then informs the broader industry.

The committees meet regularly via teleconference and in-person three times per year.
