I work closely with the beef and sheep producers and stakeholders across the red meat and wool value chain. My primary interests have been in maternal productivity of beef cattle and application of genomic testing in sheep and beef breeding programs. In September 2015 I was appointed as Manager of the SA Sheep Industry Blueprint, a $300M/year growth strategy for the SA sheepmeat and wool value chain. In 2017 this role expanded to also manage the SA Beef Industry Blueprint. Through this role I have made significant contribution to the development of research and adoption projects areas across animal health, productivity, product quality, genetic improvement, welfare and well-being and artificial breeding.
