Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) and Australian Wool Innovation (AWI) have posted the wool and sheepmeat survey to industry participants and are asking for it to be completed.

The survey helps to determine production trends and producer intentions for the year ahead.

Responses will help to determine trends for both the sheepmeat and wool industries, such as ewe and lamb numbers, marking percentages for the previous year and the status of the flock rebuild.

The results of the survey will also allow for regional and state-by-state analysis of sheepmeat and wool production, as well as the industry's standing at a national level, and highlight associated key market drivers and differing trends for each of these.

All survey responses will be made available after its completion and will assist MLA and AWI to provide market forecasts and analysis that will offer key considerations for producers throughout the year.

MLA and AWI say it is important to have a large response in order to generate the most accurate information.

Individual data collected for the survey will remain strictly confidential. The survey will be available until 29 February. People who complete the survey will go into the running to win a $1000 fuel card.
