Cattle Compensation Fund

Victoria's Cattle Compensation Fund (CCF) is established under the Livestock Disease Control Act 1994 (the Act) and funded from duty collected on the sale of cattle, calves or cattle carcases.

Under the Act, the Minister for Agriculture can make payments from the CCF to fund programs and projects for the benefit of the cattle industry in Victoria.

These payments can only be made once the Minister for Agriculture has considered recommendations from the Cattle Compensation Advisory Committee (CCAC).
