THE Southern Australia Livestock Research Council is calling for nominations for the 2022 Awards for Excellence in Southern Australian livestock industries.
The annual awards recognise, reward and celebrate excellence in the contributions of individuals to research and development, extension, communication and practical application of innovation on-farm, to improve the profitability, productivity and sustainability of the Southern red meat and livestock industries.
The SALRC committee will co-ordinate the nomination and selection process, which includes four award categories:
- Livestock Producer
- Communicator/extension specialist; and
- Young achiever – 35 years or less.
Nominees must have excelled in their individual fields and have either resided or spent a substantial amount of time in Southern Australia in their particular field, relevant to sheep meat and beef cattle industries in Southern Australia.
Overall nominees will be judged on value of their work to the Australian beef and/or sheepmeat industries; work carried out above and beyond normal duties; the standing of the nominee in the Australian livestock industries; the degree to which the nominee has been a change agent; and the degree to which the individual has been an industry leader/mentor.
SALRC chair Ian Rogan said SALRC was proud to encourage and recognise excellence in Australia’s livestock industries and the research and advisory services that contribute to innovation and productivity improvements in these industries that are so important to the nation’s economy and environment.
Nominations must be from a third party (no self-nomination). Award nominations close 30 June. Award recipients will be invited to attend an event SALRC is hosting on 6/7 September.
