lecturer in Ruminant Health and Production
School of Animal and Veterinary Science
Faculty of Sciences
I joined the School of Animal and Veterinary Sciences, Roseworthy in January 2012 for a 3 year contract as a lecturer in production animal health. I subsequently commenced a PhD in December 2014 into the cause and prevention of rib fractures in lambs in SA, plus continue as a tutor is several veterinary science subjects.
Prior to this my work encompassed on-farm research, farmer group facilitation and delivery, market assurance programs, biosecurity and whole farm nutrition focussed on the soil/plant/animal interaction in livestock production, health and management. In 2000, I co-founded the APAL agricultural laboratory in Adelaide to provide a SA based commercial soil, plant tissue and water testing service.
Upon graduation I worked for the Department of Agriculture for 11 years based at Port Augusta, Port Lincoln and Naracoorte and 7 years in mixed practice based at Naracoorte and Clare. A Masters degree at the Mackinnon Project, University of Melbourne assisted a move into livestock consultancy for the next 14 years based at Naracoorte and Adelaide.
A farming background at Spalding in South Australia lead to a lifelong interest in sheep and beef production and tertiay studies in Rural Science at the University of New England, Armidale, NSW and veterinary science at Murdoch University, Perth, WA graduating in 1979.
- Production animal health and nutrition especially diagnosis, treatment and prevention of macro and trace element deficiencies in soil, plants and ruminants and pseudo-ruminants.
- Water quality and its impact on animal health and production.
- Improving the efficiency of animal husbandry and grazing management to optimise welfare and profitability.
