I have had a lifelong association to the beef industry through involvement as a pastoralist on my family properties in Western New South Wales and Western Queensland and now service the industry as a veterinarian. I am co-owner of Broome Cattle Vets and my role and the role of our company is to provide veterinary services to beef enterprises in the Kimberley and Pilbara including and not limited to reproductive assessment and management and herd health with the constant goal of improving levels of production. Furthermore I work with exporters to prepare the beef product they have purchased to ensure it fits the criteria of importing countries. I am passionate about our Northern beef industry and am excited by the opportunities that exist for producers to develop their production and solidify market chains. The KPCA can help play an important role in these developments and my skill set would bring to the table an external and balanced view which has been formed through working with both the producer and the exporter and also being exposed to trade within our domestic market.
