Queensland beef and sheep producers, the Queensland Department of Primary Industries (QDPI) and the International Wool Secretariat (IWS), with participation from CSIRO and NSW Agriculture, joined forces in July 1994 to examine the application of Participatory Problem Solving to the Queensland sheep industry. The participants agreed that wool-producer-driven groups developing best practices through facilitated action learning could improve the viability of wool producers and the adoption of appropriate technologies. The workshop adopted the name 'Bestprac' for this process. Five Bestprac groups have been established throughout Queensland in a pilot project supported by the QDPI and the IWS. Key issues for the success of Bestprac have been identified.
