Goat fibre products are in high demand and short supply across the globe. With a local industry, there is an opportunity for Australian producers to increase participation in this trade.
The AgriFutures Goat Fibre Program aims to direct targeted research, development and extension (RD&E) that contributes to the profitability, sustainability and productivity of this industry.
AgriFutures is seeking quotations from suitably qualified organisations to develop Goat Fibre Sustainable
Production Guidelines and a Production Manual for use by the goat fibre industry. It is envisaged that these resources will form the basis of an auditable quality management system.
Through this response, experienced project management, production and quality assurance specialist Schuster Consulting Group proposes to deliver against all project requirements identified in the Request for Quotation.
