Funding for research and development

Funds carried over from the repealed Cattle Industry Compensation Fund are now held in trust and are managed by the Cattle Industry Management Committee on behalf of the WA cattle industry. The committee agreed to make the some of this fund available to projects that will benefit of the WA cattle industry.

Competitive funding rounds usually take place annually for cattle research and development projects that aim to:

  • promote market success
  • enhance industry capability
  • improve cattle health.

Individuals, groups or organisations can apply for funds to a maximum of $50 000 per year, for periods of up to three years.
