Case study: From Method to Market project – unlocking ecosystem service opportunities for livestock producers

Land and agriculture Darling Downs South West Central Queensland

A partnership between the Department of Agriculture and Fisheries and Meat and Livestock Australia, this four-year $1.2 million research project seeks to overcome the technical and economic barriers to grazier participation in ecosystem services markets whilst producing livestock. The project is engaging with livestock producers and reviewing existing and developing scientific methods to support livestock producers to be remunerated for providing ecosystem services (for example the generation of carbon credits, biodiversity credits, water quality credits) in viable red meat production systems. From Method to Market is engaging both intensive and extensive livestock production systems across eight sites in Central, Southern and South-West Queensland.
