Pork CRC Board now comprises Dr John Keniry (Chairman), Kathryn Adams, Sandra Di Blasio, Rod Hamann, Professor Simon Maddocks, Dennis Mutton, Professor John Pluske, Kenton Shaw, Andrew Spencer, Chris Trengrove, Professor Robert van Barneveld and Dr Hugh Wirth.

...
According to Board Chairman, Dr John Keniry, the four indicators followed extensive discussions with animal behaviourists and support from Pork CRC independent director Dr Hugh Wirth, a former RSPCA National President and current Victorian President.
...
Dr Keniry said the Pork CRC was all about supporting science that could make a difference and a positive contribution to Australia's pork industry, from farm to fork. While stakeholders in animal welfare science, including researchers, producers and welfare groups, have for some time been acknowledging the need for welfare indicators, they had not been consistently adopted, due mainly to lack of agreement on what would permit assessment of the animal itself, rather than the animal's environment, he said.
...
"Significantly, Chris was also very supportive of NZ Pork's initial decision to join the Pork CRC at its inception in 2005," Dr Keniry said.
...
Announcing the appointment after the Pork CRC's annual general meeting in Canberra, Board Chairman, Dr John Keniry, said Ms Adams would bring significant skills and experience to the Board, especially in the areas of intellectual property management, sustainable business management, change management and corporate governance.
...
Delivering the 2010/2011 and final annual report of the CRC for an Internationally Competitive Pork Industry, Chairman, Dr John Keniry, said its three research programs had delivered exceptional results and played major roles in revitalising the Australian pork industry's interest in innovation and its willingness to adopt new ideas. "Consistent with market trends, the new CRC for High Integrity Australian Pork will focus on improving pig welfare, reducing the carbon footprint of pork production, reducing medication and improving pork eating quality," Dr Keniry said. He noted that the new Pork CRC's fresh research agenda had already captured the attention of producers, industry, consumers and researchers across Australia and around the world. "Operating in a very competitive global environment as we do, we simply must engage the best minds to help us achieve the best outcomes for the challenges we confront. "The new Pork CRC, while built on the very substantial foundations of the first CRC, will do things differently to differentiate Australian pork as a high integrity product, grown in a welfare friendly, healthy, sustainable and profitable environment," he said.
...
Replacing Paul Pattison, Associate Professor Wayne Pitchford and Andrew Maughan from July 1, they will join existing Board members, Dr John Keniry (Chairman), Professor Simon Maddocks, Professor John Pluske, Dr Rob Van Barneveld, Rod Hamann, Sam McIvor, Brian Halstead and Nigel Smith.
...
Announcing the new Board, Dr Keniry said it was vital that Australia's pork industry maintain local production of reasonably priced, high quality pork, produced at an acceptable return on capital invested, while improving pig welfare, the environment and consumer health
...
After thanking the Federal Government for its $20 million commitment, Pork CRC Chairman, Dr John Keniry, congratulated his rebid team, headed by Dr Rob van Barneveld, with support from CEO Dr Roger Campbell, Dr Darryl D'Souza of APL, Mr Rod Hamann of Australian Pork Farms and Dr Brian Luxford of Rivalea.
...
We are also very grateful to the Pork CRC's 40 participants, all of whom I thank for their enthusiasm and support, and their commitment of $18 million in cash and $94 million in-kind over the eight years, commencing July 1, 2011, Dr Keniry said.
