Cattle Council understands cattle producers are worried by the debate around a proposed revision of cost recovery measures on the Live Export industry and are rightly concerned that those costs will likely be passed on.

The full detail of the cost recovery measures have not yet been released.

Cattle Council is awaiting the full detail of the cost recovery measures, so we can get a full understanding of what the costs are and how they will be recovered.

Cost recovery is something every agricultural industry faces and Cattle Council will be working with both the Department and the Minister’s office to make sure in the case of the beef industry, it is applied fairly.

Cattle Council is committed to working with everyone involved to get the best outcome for beef producers and looks forward to engaging constructively with producers, industry bodies and government.
