LiveCorp

The Australian Livestock Export Corporation (LiveCorp) is the service provider and rural research and development corporation for Australia’s livestock export industry. It is funded by statutory levies on the export of beef and dairy cattle, sheep and goats. LiveCorp works closely with exporters and other stakeholders to continuously improve performance in animal health and welfare, supply chain efficiency and market access.

The Australian Livestock Export Corporation Strategic Plan 2025 lays out four strategic imperatives:

  • Lead in materially advancing animal health and welfare along the export supply chain through research, development and extension.
  • Spearhead efficiency gains in the livestock export supply chain through innovative solutions and technical and technological improvements, within the framework of relevant regulation (e.g. ASEL and ESCAS).
  • Advance the export of Australian livestock to overseas countries through services in market access, development and growth.
  • Contribute materially to a growing acceptance of the livestock export industry within the community; to the industry’s ability to present its case; and to the ongoing development of a world-leading regulatory framework for the export of livestock.

As well as its own programs, LiveCorp partners with Meat & Livestock Australia to fund the Livestock Export Program (LEP). The LEP RD&E Program has a focus on improving animal health, welfare and productivity throughout the livestock export supply chain. In-market activities by the LEP support the growth, productivity improvements and sustainability of the livestock export industry through the delivery of risk mitigation strategies and extension of best practice livestock management.
