What is AEXCO?
The Australian Exporters Company (AEXCO) shareholders are the major export oaten hay processors of Australia. AEXCO was selected by the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI) as the successful company to commercialise new hay varieties beginning in 2001. Since 2001 AEXCO has launched 7 oat hay varieties, Kangaroo, Wintaroo, Brusher, Mulgara, Tungoo, Tammar and Forester, onto the market. The AEXCO shareholders (the major export hay processors) believe research and development of oaten hay varieties is a critical component in growing Australia’s export oaten hay industry. AEXCO’s primary purpose is to support the National Oat Breeding Program (NOBP) research and development activities for all oat hay industry participants.
