Livestock research & development
To support the economic development of the livestock industries, the Department of Agriculture and Food, Western Australia (DAFWA) undertakes a range of research and development activities in collaboration with producers, other research groups and industry.
Much of this research is undertaken on a co-funded basis supported by the relevant research and development corporations, Federal government or private industry. Where appropriate, this research is undertaken on farm or, in the case of more basic research, undertaken at one of DAFWA's research stations:
- Great Southern Agriculture Research Institute, Katanning (sheep)
- Mt Barker Research Station (sheep)
- Medina Research Station (pigs and sheep)
- Vasse Research Station (dairy).
