Australian research seminars planned

Australian Pork Limited and the Pork Cooperative Research Centre will travel the country during November with a series of RoadShow Seminars.

APL general manager for research and innovation, Dr Darryl D’Souza, and chief executive of the Pork CRC, Dr Roger Campbell, say the RoadShow provides an avenue for producers to find out about new developments in the industry.

“The seminars provide an opportunity for us to present research to the wider pork industry, it is also an opportunity for producers to question our research and bring a fresh input to the findings,” D’Souza said.

Keynote speaker
Keynote speaker Randy Stoecker has more than 30 years experience in the US pork industry. While in Australia Stoecker will also present at a variety of industry discussion groups, where he is keen to exchange information on production and management strategies.

“Mr Stoecker is a keen advocate of the uptake of proven science and technology and is well placed to provide some insight into how we might improve our competitiveness here in Australia,” Campbell said.

The RoadShows will be held in Perth WA, Young NSW and Nuriootpa SA.
