PDS: Improved Pasture Management Systems

This project aims to improve the pasture management systems implemented in the upper north of South Australia, by promoting better pasture options that improve the mixed farming enterprise; and demonstrating that an improved understanding of Food On Offer, including feed budgeting and the use of remote sensing pasture assessment tools, will improve overall productivity, profitability and sustainability.

PDS: Feeding Grain on Grass

This project will fund a demonstration site for producers in central west and northern New South Wales, to demonstrate the benefits of using forage and grain feed tests to develop a grain ration to supplement livestock that are grazing forage crops. Supplementary feeding increases liveweight gain and enables improved production efficiency and increased profitability.

Healthy Ageing with Dairy: Aged Care Sector and Older Adults Scoping

The addition of dairy foods such as milk, cheese and yoghurt into the daily diet of aged-care residents has been proven to reduce fractures and falls. This project aims to translate this research into policy opportunities to drive the uptake of dairy products within Australia's ageing population and deliver benefits back to the dairy industry.

Impacts of COVID-19 on the Australian Seafood Industry: Extending the assessment to prepare for uncertain futures

In March 2021 the FRDC published an initial rapid assessment of the impacts of COVID-19 on the Australian seafood industry from January - June 2020, that considered direct and indirect effects of disruption to seafood production, supply chains and markets during the initial period of the pandemic, and the availability of data to support rapid assessment. This project aims to produce a more comprehensive follow-up Impact Assessment Report, that will inform the development of a guideline to assess the economic and social effects of large-scale, multi-level risks to fisheries and aquaculture in the future.

Translating intramuscular fat measurement technology to the sheepmeat industry

Intramuscular fat contributes positively to the juiciness and flavour of lamb and is a useful indicator of eating quality. This project will deliver a commercially applicable intramuscular probe to measure intramuscular fat in un-cut lamb carcases. This project will focus on lamb but the device will also be applicable to beef.
