An article by AGBU PhD student, Sarita Guy, on Breeding Focus 2016 and the Pig Genetics Workshop has been published in the Australian Pork Newspaper.

AGBU has just hosted Breeding Focus 2016 Improving Welfare. Discussions covered cattle, sheep, pigs, ethics and crocodiles. Have a look at photos and comments on our facebook and twitter links.

Breeding Focus 2014: Improving Resilience
This industry workshop was held at the end of October 2014 and provided a discussion forum for over 40 scientists, breeders and representatives from the livestock and aquaculture industries.

The topics presented at the workshop have been published as a book “Breeding Focus 2014 – Improving resilience” which can be purchased from AGBU. Abstracts of the papers are available as a pdf and individual papers can also be downloaded.
