The Stock Feed Manufacturers Council of Australia (SFMCA) was formed in 1961 with the aim of representing individual and corporate stock feed manufacturers in Australia.

Australia’s chicken, pork, beef, lamb and dairly products are highly sought after throughout the world because of their high quality and delicious taste.

The feed these animals receive during their lifetime plays an important role in ensuring these high standards are maintained.

This illuminates the important role played by the SFMCA, as it is responsible for producing quality standards for stock feed.

These standards ensure that the stock feed manufacturing industry in Australia produces high quality animal feed that optimises the growth and development of Australia’s livestock.

The standards reflect the specific requirements of livestock producers, which ensures both stock feed manufacturers and livestock producers benefit.

SFMCA also represents its members and the stock feed manufacturing industry by actively addressing national industry issues. These include raw material ingredient supply and government legislation regulations, among others.

The association is comprised of a Federal Council, which features representatives from each state based stock feed industry association.

SFMCA does not directly offer membership; rather individuals must apply via their state stock feed industry association.

These exist in New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia and Western Australia.

Active stock feed manufacturing companies situated in Australia have access to full membership, while associate membership is provided to companies or individuals with an interest, or some sort of involvement in, the stock feed industry.
