BOARD: Bill Nosworthy of Sheringa has been re-elected to the Livestock SA board.

Eyre Peninsula representation on the Livestock SA board will continue following the organisation's annual general meeting earlier this month.

Sheringa's Bill Nosworthy was re-elected to the board, alongside Joe Keynes of Keyneton, while three new members were successfully elected.

New faces on the board include Richard Kirkland of Furner, Marina Gregor from Kangaroo Island and Mount Compass' Robert Brokenshire.

Mr Nosworthy is joined on the board by fellow Eyre Peninsula farmer Mark Dennis of Koppio, who is continuing for the second year of his two-year term.

Livestock SA chief executive officer Andrew Curtis said the new-look board boasted a diverse range of experience and expertise, which would assist Livestock SA in continuing to build a respected, sustainable and profitable South Australian livestock industry.

"We now have a really good range of new members from across the state who will complement the existing members on the board," he said.

"They are all passionate about the industry and want to be a voice and representative for all South Australian livestock producers.

"We look forward to continuing the progress and development of the organisation into the future."

Several constitutional changes were discussed during the meeting, including altering the regional boundaries to align with the Landscape SA board regions, the removal of the reference to branches in the appointment process for a regional chairperson and group, and the removal of the reference to a maximum size for committees.
