Jamie's Nuffield Scholarship 2017

Jamie is currently completing a 2017 Nuffield Scholarship looking at "Attracting and retaining young people in the sheep industry". He is hoping to meet as many young, successful and innovative people in the industry as he can, aiming to learn from them and find out how and why they have reached where they are. He would like to thank Nuffield Australia and PPSA for sponsoring him, without this it would not have been possible. To follow Jamie's Nuffield travel please click the link below.

Tri-Lamb Young Leaders Tour 2016

Jamie attended the 2016 Lambex conference and a two-week tour of eastern Australia and New Zealand in his role as a mentor for the inaugural Tri-Lamb Youth Leadership Program in August. This program aims to build industry leadership capabilities in the sheep industry in Australia, New Zealand and USA, as well as growing the consumption of lamb in the USA (our biggest value export market).

ASI Conference, USA - 2015, 2016, 2017 & 2018

Jamie was chosen by the Sheepmeat Council of Australia to represent young Aussie sheep producers at the Tri-Lamb and ASI Conferences in USA, January 2015, 2016, 2017 and 2018. This was a great experience in which he learnt a lot about the international side of the industry (where a lot of our product eventually ends up). It also allowed him to gain new contacts/friends in both USA and New Zealand. Hopefully these efforts help Australia, USA and New Zealand work together to increase lamb consumption in America. There are some great future opportunities for the lamb industry. Jamie would like to thank the Sheepmeat Council of Australia for this opportunity.

Virbac USA Travel Scholarship 2010

Winners of the 2010 Virbac Proud Achievers Award gave Andrew & Tracie the opportunity to do a study tour/holiday in the USA. Focusing on 'worm resistance in sheep', 'livestock health practices' & 'genetics', paved the way to gaining new friendships, contacts, knowledge, appreciation, and motivation to move forward in our industry. Andrew and Tracie would like to thank Virbac for this opportunity.

Andrews Nuffield Scholarship 2007

Andrew completed a Nuffield Scholarship in 2007. His subject was “Objective Measurement in the Australian Prime Lamb Industry”. The scholarship helped Andrew gain a great deal of experience in animal production, genetics and world agriculture. It also gave him a greater understanding of the prime lamb and meat industries as a whole on a global scale. He hopes that he can use this experience to help improve the efficiency and profitability of Australia’s prime lamb industry, along with his own and client flocks. He would like to thank Nuffield Australia and MLA for giving him this opportunity.
