Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) is the marketing and research and development body for Australia’s red meat and livestock industry.
MLA is a not-for-profit organisation owned by cattle, sheep and goat farmers. It is funded by a levy on livestock sales, with the Australian Government providing matching funds for research and development investment.
Educating young Australians about the red meat industry is really important to Australia’s cattle and sheep farmers. This is why MLA make it a priority to engage school students with fun, curriculum linked resources and interactive activities as an aid to bring the farm into the classroom.
The education resources section of MLA’s new education website, Australian Good Meat, has a huge range of lesson ideas, study guides, fact sheets and digital activities to teach students about the Australian red meat and livestock industry.
