Red Meat Value Chain
From the consumer to the breeding industry.
Consumer sensory analysis and behaviour, preparation, retail, wholesale, distribution, processing, finishing, production, breeding and genetics. I also have a practical understanding of the game industry.
Mechanistic and empirical models to connect all links through the chain.
Over 30+ years, apart from conducting research in all sectors of the value chain I have worked commercially in all sectors, gaining a very practical understanding of the chain and inhibitors to technology adoption.
I have also worked and undertaken research on the two Red Meat Industry Social Licenses
- Animal Welfare, and
- the Environment

As an adjunct I currently work in industry, having left the university and my teaching role in 2013.
In industry I undertake various adult teaching roles from time to time in subjects from the red meat value chain to applied statisitics.
I co-supervise PhD and honours students.
I wrote and coordinated Research Methodology for Animal Science a second year compulsory subject for four years. I have tutored and given guest lectures into nearly all Animal Science subjects over many years.
