Calling all scientists, extension officers, vets, advisors and students working in and studying the Australian red meat industry….
This is your opportunity to have a say in the development of a professional development platform for you!
Across Australia there are hundreds of people working and studying in the fields of red meat research, development and adoption but until now there hasn’t been a cohesive system which helps these professionals to enhance their skills, engage in networking activities and be recognized for their achievements.
The RAD Meat project which I am running in partnership with Maria Thompson from AgSTAR projects, aims to develop an enticing platform of activities for Australia’s red meat and livestock industry which attracts new entrants to careers in Research, Development and Adoption (RD&A) and which supports, nurtures and encourages the retention of its skilled professionals.
The project is being conducted on behalf of Meat & Livestock Australia (MLA) who recognized the attraction, retention and professional development of RD&A professionals was a key priority for sheepmeat and grassfed beef producers.
The first stage of the project is to gather opinions from RD&A professionals on what structure the professional development platform should take, what information it should provide and how that information should be delivered.
