Graham Centre member and NSW Department of Primary Industries meat scientist Dr Benjamin Holman has been recognised by the Southern Australia Livestock Research Council (SALRC) with a Young Achiever Award.
Dr Holman’s research focuses on production and processing system effects on red meat, optimising storage combinations to deliver better preservation and new approaches to better match meat-to-market.
SALRC Chair Ian Rogan said, “The successful future of our sheep and beef industries depends on the research, development and commercial adoption of best practice and new knowledge and products.”
Dr Holman said he was honoured to receive the SALRC Young Achiever Award.
“It is an exciting time in the livestock industry and I feel fortunate to be involved,” Dr Holman said.
“The award is a reminder that as scientists we are responsible to red meat industry and must strive to ensure that our research has real and practical benefit to the sector.”
SALRC is an independent, incorporated association and one of three national research Councils setup to provide recommendations on Research, Development & Adoption (RD&A) priorities and planning for grass-fed beef and sheepmeat producers throughout Australia.
