This report provides comprehensive, up-to-date information on Australian fodder production, use and trade.
The report discusses the key trends in fodder production, use, prices and trade at the national, state and regional levels. In addition, the report quantifies the key fodder producing, selling and consuming sectors and discusses change in their characteristics over recent years. Finally the report provides a brief analysis of international trade in fodder and fodder products.
It has been eight years since the last comprehensive statistical compendium of Australian fodder statistics, the Atlas of the Australian Fodder Industry – outline of production and trade, was published in August 2000. In the period since 2000, there has been radical change in the scale and distribution of fodder production, use and trade in Australia.
This report is targeted to fodder producers and consumers, exporters, rural industry bodies including the Australian Fodder Industry Association, Dairy Australia, the Australian Lot Feeders Association and Meat and Livestock Australia. The report is also aimed at collectors and publishers of statistical and price data for the fodder industry including the Australian Bureau of Statistics, together with state and federal government policy bodies.
