Top southern livestock industry contributors sought

Sheep Central, May 3, 2022

NOMINATIONS are being sought for the 2022 SALRC Awards for Excellence in Southern Australian Livestock Industries.

The Southern Australia Livestock Research Council has called for nominations for the 2022 awards to recognise excellence in research and development, extension, communication and practical application of innovation on farm, and in improving the profitability, productivity and sustainability in the red meat and livestock industries.

The SALRC committee will co-ordinate the nomination and selection process, that includes four award categories – livestock producer; scientist/researcher; communicator/extension specialist, and; young achiever – 35 years or under.

Nominees must have excelled in their individual fields and either resided or spent a substantial amount of time in southern Australia while they excelled in their particular field. Their contribution must be relevant to sheep meat and beef cattle industries in southern Australia.

Overall nominees will be judged on the value of their work to the Australian livestock industries, work carried out above and beyond normal duties, the nominee’s standing, the degree to which the nominee has been a change agent or an industry leader/mentor.

SALRC chair Ian Rogan said the committee is proud to encourage and recognise excellence in our livestock industries and the research and advisory services that contribute to innovation and productivity improvements in these industries that are so important to our country’s economy and environment.

Nominations must be from a third party (i.e. no self-nomination). Award nominations close 30 June 2022. Award recipients will be invited to attend an event SALRC are hosting on 6/7 September 2022.
