Sheep CRC takes producers on a journey

SHEEP producers and industry participants should pencil July 9 into their diaries as it is the day when the Co-operative Research Centre for Sheep Industry Innovation will take them on a research and development journey from Concept to Impact.

The Sheep CRC was established in July 2007 for a seven-year term to undertake a program of research and delivery of innovation to the Australian sheep industry.

With the term nearing its end, the Sheep CRC is preparing for its final conference to be held in Adelaide on July 9 (immediately prior to LambEx) following the theme Concept to Impact.

The Sheep CRC will report back on its successful campaign in converting research concepts into a series of practical and profitable tools which will continue to transform the sheep industry for years to come.

The conference proceedings will be in the form of a series of new Practical Wisdom notes designed to provide clear guidelines on how the sheepmeat and wool sectors can use the information generated by the CRC.

Topics will include genetics, meat science and consumer eating quality; improved sheep management; measuring and managing wool quality; and ongoing opportunities for education and training.
