Biographical details

I spent the first 33 years of my life on a mixed grazing and dryland cropping operation comprising 400 stud and commercial beef cattle, 1800 fine wool merino sheep and 800 first cross ewes on the southern tablelands of NSW. During this time I attained the practical skills to produce and finish beef animals destined for high value domestic and export markets as well as breeding bulls and females to meet seedstock demand. The wool and prime lamb enterprises demonstrated the importance of diversification for delivering a highly sustainable, productive and profitable outcome as well as provided valuable insight into the factors influencing both industries.

This on-farm experience proved to be invaluable when undertaking a BScAgr degree with Honours in the Faculty of Agriculture at the University of Sydney (1998-2001) as it enabled me to link theory with the practical application. My undergraduate experience in areas such as soils, agronomy and the animal sciences complemented my understanding of the factors influencing product quality for wool, meat and milk. In my final year I specialised in livestock production systems.

I was awarded a PhD in Veterinary Science from the University of Sydney in 2006 titled “The biological and financial impact of ovine Johne’s disease in Australia”. This Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA) funded research required a comprehensive understanding of on-farm production systems. My investigation of the impact of this endemic disease on twelve farms in southern NSW provided evidence of the impact of the disease on farm profitability, with justification for Animal Health Australia (AHA) to introduce a vaccination and risk-based trading system for sheep within Australia. This research established the disease impact on livestock production and the cost for producers based on disease prevalence. Financial modelling, disease investigation and extensive surveying skills were attained during this PhD research.

My academic career enables me to continue contributing to beef, wool and milk production, both domestically and internationally. Hence, my teaching and research are focused on developing skills and knowledge directly applicable to industry. In addition, owning land where I run cattle and sheep have maintained my connection with primary production and the importance of interacting with industry stakeholders.
