Pork CRC Media Release -- April 1, 2011


PORK CRC SCIENTISTS CONSULTED BY PIG VETS



Australia's Pork Cooperative Research Centre (CRC) today announced it would
be a major sponsor of the 2011 Australian Pig Vets meeting in Melbourne in
July.



The Pork CRC will support the attendance of keynote speakers Professor Mary
Barton, University of South Australia, Dr Toni Chapman and Dr Alison
Collins, both of The Elizabeth Macarthur Agricultural Institute, Industry
and Investment NSW, Dr Megan Edwards, ACE Livestock Consulting and Dr Sue
Yen Woon, Rivalea.



According to Pork CRC CEO, Dr Roger Campbell, these researchers have been
leading Pork CRC supported research projects, some of which are some
distance from adoption or application on farm, but others are very close.



"This meeting of veterinarians who work directly with pork producers on
farms provides an opportunity for Pork CRC research findings to be robustly
discussed in a technical forum, subsequently assisting the adoption and
commercialisation process," he said.



Australian Pig Vets, a special interest group of the Australian Veterinary
Association, will hold its meeting on July 24-26 at Rydges Hotel, Flemington
Rd., North Melbourne.
