MLA’s 2016 Nuffield Scholar
Liz recently received a Nuffield Australia Farming Scholarship supported by Meat and Livestock Australia.
My study topic will focus on the performance and profitability of producing ‘natural’ lotfed beef, considering genetics and traceability claims. I also plan to investigate a point-of-origin beef labelling system integrated with the National Livestock Identification System (NLIS), much like what is used in the wine industry. My aim is to improve the image of grainfed beef with consumers. I am planing to travel to Canada, the United Kingdom, the United States and Tasmania in her studies of feedlot systems and business models.
I would like to thank the MLA for their support, I look forward to working with them.
