Biosecurity

WoolProducers is the only wool industry member of Animal Health Australia (AHA) and is responsible for the expenditure of levy collected under the Australian Animal Health Council (Live-stock Industries) Funding Act 1996 in the area of animal health, welfare and biosecurity on behalf of the wool industry.

WPA’s relationship with AHA requires an over-sighting/decision making role regarding the spending of wool industry health and welfare levies. This involves an oversight and check in relation to two important components: The Sheep Industry Trust Fund (SITF) and Wool Industry Reserves.

WPA, like all members pay an annual subscription fee to AHA for core subscription funded programs and the WPA Board is responsible for the direction of levies to fund special funded programs.
