China key to live export cattle push

04.21.2019, Comments Off on China key to live export cattle push, 苏州美甲美睫培训学校, by .

China presents an exciting opportunity as an export destination for Australian Angus cattle, with almost 30,000 Angus heifers certified for export there last year.STRONG export demand for Angus heifers has provided an important marketing option for stud and commercial breeders in recent years.

Angus Australia chief executive officer Peter Parnell says recent price rises in the domestic market may reduce the numbers available for live export trade in 2015, but in the longer term the trade would remain important.

“It helps buffer fluctuations in supply and demand, especially during poor seasons,” he said.

Dr Parnell says there are tremendous opportunities in China, with almost 30,000 Angus heifers certified for export there last year.

Strong demand is expected to continue in 2015, especially under the China-Australia Free Trade Agreement, which will open up further markets.

“When they really get serious we are never going to be able to supply the numbers they need,” he said.

“We have seen the demand from their dairy industry with the importation of Holstein heifers for years but it is only just starting in the beef industry.

“Fortunately for us and Australian Angus breeders their breed of choice appears to be Angus, which comes down to the global recognition of the quality of Angus genetics.

“Across a range of climates where beef herds are expanding they are all choosing Angus.”

Kazakhstan and Russia have been major destinations for Angus heifers from 2007 to 2013 on the back of government incentives to develop their breeding herds.

However, falling oil prices have lead to a downturn in the Kazakhstan and Russian economies, making this funding more difficult. Political and trade restrictions in Russia were further obstacles.

Dr Parnell said it was unlikely this trade would resume in the foreseeable future.

Several large shipments of Angus bulls were exported to Russia last year, along with a very large shipment of feeder steers from southern Australia.

It was possible there would be further orders for feeder steers to Russia to utilise the feedlots and processing works they had built.

Dr Parnell said Angus Australia had provided support to the livestock agencies facilitating orders through pedigree certification of these breeding heifers.

Since 2007, more than 130,000 Angus heifers had been certified, in conjunction with the Australian Cattle Genetics Exports Agency.

Most of these heifers – about 90,000 – were exported by several shipping companies to a single enterprise in Russia, Miratorg.

Angus Australia has also provided support to several of these overseas herds by performance recording their cattle on Australian Angus Breedplan to create estimated breeding values on these animals.

Phillip and Trish Palmer, “Overnewton Station”, Ivanhoe, purchased both of the top priced rams at the sale for $5600.

The 10 month old Amurula 144438 also made $5600 and had ASBVs of 2.9mm for EDP, 0.9mm for PFAT and 4.4 kilograms for weaning weight (WWT).

Mr Palmer said both of the rams were well put together and good, safe sheep.

The Palmers, purchased a total of 22 rams at the sale to a top of $5600 and averaging $1686 to use on their commercial lamb operation.

The Palmers produce lambs that are sent directly to the Junee abattoirs, usually at about 10 months when they reach between 20 to 22kg. Mr Palmer said all of the rams would be used over their ewes commercialy and the two top rams in particular would help produce heavy lambs.

“They’re good, heavy, well dressed rams,” he said.

The Croziers, “Marfield Station”, Ivanhoe, purchased 19 rams at the sale to a top of $2800 and averaging $1894.

Allan Crozier has been purchasing rams from Amarula since the sale started and his two sons, Rick and Ben, have carried on the tradition. The family runs a commercial lamb operation where they sell directly to Melbourne abattoirs for a range of different markets.

Rick Crozier said they purchase Amarula rams for their exceptional quality and consistency.

“They’re consistent rams and from what we’ve seen previously, they maintain their commission and structure,” he said.

Landmark stock and station agent John Settree, Dubbo, said the sale was a fantastic result which reflected the quality of the sheep offered.

“There was a lot of stud interest with 12 studs registered,” he said.

Vendors Lorroi and Justin Kirkby were ecstatic with their sale and were thankful for both the repeat and new buyers.

Mr Kirkby said their main focus was their commercial clients who run their rams with large flock numbers.

Getting feedback from these clients and return buyers was important because Mr Kirkby said it gave them confidence in their sheep and genetics.

“The sale result shows confidence in the Dorper breed, there’s a big future in Dorpers still,” he said.

The sale was settled by Landmark Dubbo.

The Warks were impressed with the rams co-efficient of variation (CV) of 19.3 per cent and standard deviation (Stdev) of 3.0-micron.

The ram will be used on the Warks’ commercial Merino fat lamb operation which is mainly a wool enterprise.

The Warks produce a fibre diameter of about 16.5 micron but are aiming to put more weight on their flock.

Mr Wark said he liked the size and density of the ram and it’s good style of wool.

“It had most things that I wanted,” he said.

“We’ve been focusing on good wool, frame and wool cut,” Mr Woods said.

Stud principal Chris Clonan was very pleased with the result of the sale and said it would have had a lot to do with good rain at the beginning of the season.

“This time last year it was very dry,” he said.

“This year saw a big improvement with a few extra buyers and volume buyers.”

UOW to smash ceiling

04.21.2019, Comments Off on UOW to smash ceiling, 苏州美甲美睫培训学校, by .

GLASS CEILINGS: UOW lecturer and scientist Dr Danielle Skropeta is excited the issue of gender equality in science is no longer the elephant in the room. Picture: SuppliedDespite women outnumbering men in enrollments for science degrees and PhD’s, a glass ceiling still exists but the University of Wollongong hopes to break it.
Nanjing Night Net

UOW is one of the first universities to take part in a new Science in Australia Gender Equity (SAGE) pilot aimed at furthering the careers of females in traditionally male-dominated disciplines.

They’ve committed to tackling the gender pay gap, stamping out discrimination, and preventing the loss of women across the career pipeline.

Currently females make up just 17 per cent of senior academics in Australian universities and research institutes.

Dr Danielle Skropeta is a senior lecturer and chemist researching new cancer treatments, and has been with the Wollongong institution since 2006.

Currently she sits on the workplace diversity reference group and feels opening the discussion on gender equality will helpstop talent from being wasted.

“It feels it’s the zeitgeist at the moment for gender equity, so there’s a lot of discussion everywhere we go and it’s giving women more power to bring it up and talk about it,” she said.

While attesting to having great male colleagues and great male support, Dr Skropeta said the inequality has become institutionalised in science and engineering fields.

“It’s become part of the fabric. I think we all go on without taking our glasses off and seeing it for what it is,” she said.

A recent report released from the University of Melbourne confirmed women were increasingly achieving at the highest levels than men, obtaining advanced scientific qualifications and taking key roles, though there are high attrition rates.

Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research and Innovation) Professor Judy Raper said UOW had a proud history of gender equalitythrough a range of policies, strategies and initiatives, but was committed to doing more through the SAGE program.

UOW already boasts anumber of female researchers working on a range of studies “critical to Australia’s future” likesaving the Great Barrier Reef, campaigning for public policy change to curb childhood obesity, and finding cures for dementia.

Nearly half of the iAccelerate start-up businesses have female founders, while female leaders make up three out of five of the university’s senior executive.
