I am passionate about improving the health, welfare and productivity of ruminant livestock, particularly in low-input farming systems. I have a focus on adoption of drought resilient farming practices through the SA Drought Hub and I am keen to get knowledge and new ideas out of the lab and on to farm where it can make a big impact.
I graduated as a veterinarian from the University of Adelaide in 2015 with a keen interest in livestock health, and herd management. In 2022, I completed a Master of Sustainable Agriculture, this allowed me to broaden my scope of interests from animals by themselves, to looking at the farm as a whole.
My previous research has explored the interactions between livestock grazing practices, plant growth, and soil health in low-input grazing systems, and how this can be used to improve the mineral nutrition of livestock. I have also explored the potential for improved intestinal parasite control with natural methods by allowing stock to browse from trees in grazing systems.
I am currently working on pasture feedbase management and ruminant grazing practices, and how these fit to multi-enterprise farming businesses; as well as collaborating on several livestock drought resilience projects through the SA Drought Hub.
