Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) is an exempt public authority which provides research for the Australian red meat and livestock industry and promotes beef, lamb and goat meat in Australia and international markets.

Its marketing activities include appearances by "Lambassador" Sam Kekovich. [1][2]

In May 2011, an exposé on the ABCTV current affairs program Four Corners revealed poor processing techniques in certain Indonesian abattoirs. Facilities included in the program had received training and equipment from Australia's live export industry, including MLA, and Government through a co-funded animal welfare program.[3]

From mid-2011, the Australian Government has required the adoption of a new regulatory framework for Indonesian supply chains, including independent auditing, to provide greater oversight and accountability of in-market operations.[4]

Market indicators[edit]

The Eastern Young Cattle Indicator (EYCI), an indicator of general cattle markets in Australia, is produced daily by MLA's National Livestock Reporting Service (NLRS).
