This PhD will enable a step-change in livestock productivity and welfare both in Australia and internationally through novel, collaborative and interdisciplinary research. You will be part of an international group that is changing the global focus of farming towards the individual production animal to improve efficiency and welfare by revealing the value of technology, data and associated advanced precision livestock systems. Your highly innovative research will link the individual production animal and farm practice with the needs of the market and in so doing, add significant value to the food produced in systems that exceed the welfare demands of society.
