On-line measurement of intramuscular fat in hot lamb carcases

An imaging needle using an established medical technology has established a positive proof-of-concept to measure Intra Muscular Fat (IMF) percentage in an un-cut lamb carcase. Intramuscular fat contributes positively to the juiciness and flavour of lamb and is a useful indicator of eating quality. This project will assist in refining the pre-commercial prototype probe under development, validate the precision and accuracy of IMF measurement and release a prototype device to an early-adopter industry partner.

An investigation of recreational fishing peak bodies in Western Australia, Victoria and Northern Territory to identify insights into models of success

The Tasmanian Association for Recreational Fishing Inc. (TARFish) has identified that its current operating model is not sustainable. Through this project TARfish will investigate three successful models of recreational fishing peak bodies - RecFishWest (Western Australia), VRFish (Victoria) and Amateur Fisherman's Association of the Nothern Territory (Northern Territory) - to learn about success factors, risks, and the pathways for future growth planned by each group that will ensure its own survival.

Demonstrating the benefits of building capability and capacity in extension delivery in the vegetable industry

This project focuses on identifying what support extension officers require to help them develop the necessary skills, knowledge and experience to deliver effective extension to vegetable growers. It will also identify which avenues and networks vegetable growers prefer to use to gain knowledge and skills.

Designing the integration of extension into research projects: Tangible pathways to enhance adoption and impact

Researchers are experts in their field, but are not necessarily skilled in encouraging producers and growers to adopt their findings. This project seeks to best understand how to ensure that an adoption pathway is incorporated into the design and delivery of research projects. As a key outcome, researchers and extension officers will be actively engaged in the design of a theory of change to inform the pathways to adoption and impact.

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.

Understanding water quality risk for the sustainable and efficient production of Pacific and Sydney Rock Oysters

The Macleay River is a typical oyster farming estuary that experiences a range of water quality issues. For the first time, this project will collect and analyse very detailed water quality information from this estuary that will be used to build predictive models to show the impact of poor water quality events such as flooding, bushfire runoff, acid sulphate runoff, de-oxygenated water, disease, low salinity and sewage spills on estuaries farming Sydney rock and pacific oysters.
