S2 Ep 5: Grazing industry identity Jock Whittle

Beef Central’s ever popular podcast series, The Weekly Grill, has returned from its summer recess with today’s fifth episode of a new series.

Beef 2021

Jock Whittle

Host Kerry Lonergan this week turns up the heat on grazing industry identity Jock Whittle, the head of asset performance for MIRA Agriculture for the Macquarie Group, who spent 12 years as chief executive officer of Paraway Pastoral Co.

In a wide ranging interview, the pair touch on topics including the grazing industry (and Paraway’s) approach to sustainability, carbon farming, and the critical need to focus on farm safety.
