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.
Discussions with WA Minister for Agriculture and Food, Terry Redman and updates on Pork CRC supported projects at the Department of Agriculture and Food WA (DAFWA) and Murdoch University were highlights of the Pork CRC Board's recent quarterly meeting in WA. Chairman, Dr John Keniry and CEO, Dr Roger Campbell, stressed to Minister Redman how important it was that support and funding for DAFWA's pork R&D team be maintained and how the Pork CRC valued highly the contributions of all WA-based research partners, including DAFWA, Murdoch University and WA's APC Pork Producers' Committee.
Welcoming him to the board, Pork CRC Chairman, Dr John Keniry, said his skills and experience would further the CRC's contribution to Australia's pork industry. "John's research and work in pig nutrition, digestive physiology and gastrointestinal tract diseases will greatly benefit Pork CRC's work in keeping Australia's pork industry internationally competitive," Dr Keniry said.
February 11 - Pork CRC exceeds its Targets
Three years of innovative research has seen Pork CRC cutting the cost of pork production and enhancing the global competitiveness of Australia's pork industry, according to Pork CRC Chairman, Dr John Keniry. Marking Pork CRC's Third Year Review, Dr Keniry said Pork CRC had met and, in some cases, exceeded, the targets set out for it in its Commonwealth Agreement. Pork CRC enjoys strong support from the pork industry, which has significant influence on its strategic direction, ensuring its research is relevant and valued,Dr Keniry said. Some industry leaders have estimated that Pork CRC is now responsible for 80 per cent of Australia's current pork research. So, perhaps it's little wonder that we're seeing more industry participants in the work of the CRC, including one overseas company - Nutreco Nederland NV, he said. In a highly competitive industry with strong cost pressures, Pork CRC research has reduced the cost of production for Australian growers by an average 30-35 cents/kg carcass weight.
Speaking at the release of the Pork CRC's 2007/08 Annual Report, Pork CRC Chairman, Dr John Keniry, said the Centre's work was vital to maintaining Australia's strong domestic pork industry and its international competitiveness.
