The harsh Australian environment and a changing climate require the combination of traits from both subspecies to secure national and global meat and milk production.
We analysed genotypes of Hong Kong's feral cattle population to determine their origin.
Our research shows that calves perform just as well with foster colostrum as they do with maternal colostrum.
We investigated the different immune components in colostrum and their absorption by the neonate calf to help producers manage calf health and their long-term production.
We linked up with industry to develop a test that can accurately, quickly and cost effectively determine presence of lice before or at shearing.
We're using new molecular biomarkers to improve pig welfare and the assessment of their welfare.
We're assisting lamb processors to turn to the power of mathematics and employ optimisation methodologies to guide them to make the most from each carcase.
We show it's possible to disentangle the DNA sequences of the chromosomes inherited from the mother and the father, to create true diploid genomes from a single individual.
Determining the patterns of expression and mechanisms of gene regulation at key fetal stages will provide us with information about normal development.
