About the Talk: Big brother on-farm, we’ve got our eye on ewe
Beth is involved in the application of sensors to monitor sheep remotely from the paddock. This is an exciting area of new technology that can potentially fast-track the genetic and reproductive progress of our state flock. This talk will highlight the significant advantages of this technology to farmers.
Beth grew up on a farm in East Broomehill where in some paddocks the sand was so white she thought she lived at the beach. She cut her research teeth working on the Lifetime Wool Project. After far too much education, some intense mentoring and a light diploma in life skills she is back working for the state department’s Sheep Industry and Business Innovation program. Away from sheep and research, Beth’s interests include dressing-up as ostrich lady, gypsy fortune-telling and writing and singing music for an imaginary rock band.
