Cattle endocrinologist joins cq uni team _ queensland country life gas in chest

RESEARCH: Internationally-renowned cattle endocrinologist Jim Kinder will work with CQUniversity’s Precision Livestock Management team for the next 12 months. INTERNATIONALLY-recognised cattle endocrinologist Jim Kinder will call Rockhampton home for the next 12 months, boosting the expertise of the CQUniversity’s livestock research team. Professor Kinder hails from the College of Food, Agriculture, and Environmental Sciences at Ohio State University’s Agricultural Technical Institute and has joined CQUniversity’s Precision Livestock Management team for a 12 month sabbatical. For Prof Kinder and his wife Denva, the move marks something of a home-coming, having first worked in Rockhampton’s livestock research facilities in 1992-93, when the former JM Rendel Laboratories were run by CSIRO.

“It’s great to be back here,” he said.

CQUniversity’s Precision Livestock Management research team, headed by Prof Dave Swain, is developing automated data-gathering tools to monitor the condition and behaviour of individual animals, in order to help graziers make more informed production and marketing decisions. “When I considered taking a sabbatical I researched the possibilities and took advice from people here in Australia whose opinions I value, and they were telling about what is happening at CQUniversity in building relationships with the beef cattle sector and I was particularly intrigued by the cattle research program being undertaken here,” he said. “It’s fascinating because we really don’t know that much about cattle behaviour, and it’s something that I’ve touched on a little in my career with regards to the influence of hormones on behaviour, so I considered coming to CQUniversity was something that I would benefit from.

” “As I look worldwide at the lack of appreciation for agriculture in society, I do see the use of technology – like what is being used here – as something that will encourage more young students into the industry.” During his stay, Prof Kinder will draw on his immense record of research publication and editing of research papers to provide students with advice on developing their hypotheses, processes for undertaking their research, and reporting results in line with international quality standards. “The thing that I’ve really got to offer is a strong background in the reproductive biology of beef cattle and I hope to bring that focus to the work the students and staff are doing here at CQUniversity,” Prof Kinder said. “At Ohio, I was heavily involved in the University’s administration so I’m also keen to share what I can with CQUniversity about the use of technology for information transfer with the staff, students and the community.

“But most of all I enjoy being a mentor – that’s where I get most satisfaction.
