These Angus breeders are responsible for over 40% of animals registered in Australian pedigree beef herds.

ARGUS Group

ANIMAL REPRODUCTION GROUP – UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY

The Animal Reproduction Group University of Sydney (ARGUS) studies both basic and applied aspects of reproduction in farm and wildlife animals. ARGUS is particularly interested in the development and application of assisted reproductive technologies (e.g. AI, IVF, MOET and sperm sexing) to animal production and conservation. The ARGUS group has a track record of producing high quality research for the Australian and global sheep industry.

Associate Professor of Animal Reproduction, Simon De Graff, conducts ongoing research into semen and embryo preservation, artificial insemination and embryo transfer. In vitro fertilisation and embryo culture. Production of pre-sexed offspring by flow cytometric sex-sorting. He is also focussed on the role of seminal plasma in sperm function and fertility.

Australian Cattle Veterinarians

SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP OF THE AUSTRALIAN VETERINARY ASSOCIATION (AVA)

ACV members are predominately mixed practitioners who have a specific interest in bovines. The science of this species continues to grow in significance to producers, consumers and government. ACV members provide crucial services to agricultural producers who feed the country, while also playing a key role in disease surveillance and securing our quarantine status and protecting ongoing productivity.

ACV’s key mission is to ensure ongoing productivity and prosperity for producers as well as managing and maintaining animal welfare. Our two flagship accreditation schemes for pregnancy diagnosis and assessing bull breeding soundness, PREgCHECK® and BULLCHECK®, are key components to this service, giving producers assurance of accuracy, consistency and accountability by using their accredited Australian Cattle Veterinarian.

To register, you must be a veterinarian with a qualification recognised for registration in Australia, or a student enrolled in a recognised Australian University in Veterinary Science.

Australian Sheep Veterinarians

SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP OF THE AUSTRALIAN VETERINARY ASSOCIATION (AVA)

Australian Sheep Veterinarians was established to improve human and animal welfare by improving the understanding of ovine health, behaviour and its significance in veterinary science. ASV members share an interest in ovine health, welfare and production.  This is an area which is growing as a science, with more and more research undertaken in Australia and around the world. ASV members are dedicated to sharing information with and educating members about issues that affect the production and health and welfare of sheep.  ASV’s key mission is to further research and knowledge of sheep disease, production, and the improvement of standards in sheep practice.

Australian Reproduction Veterinarians

SPECIAL INTEREST GROUP OF THE AUSTRALIAN VETERINARY ASSOCIATION (AVA)

Australian Reproduction Veterinarians provides a link between members and government bodies, breed societies and the artificial breeding industry. The ARV has established performance standards and guidelines for member and non-member veterinarians that recognise the specialised procedures involved in embryo collection, handling, cryopreservation and transfer. ARV have achieved this by testing all areas of commercial embryo transfer to ensure that the public can be confident when engaging the services of an ARV certified veterinary surgeon.

 

UQ School of Veterinary Science

LEADERS IN VETERINARY SCIENCE

The University of Queensland’s School of Veterinary Science is a global leader in research into animal reproduction and genetics.

Working collaboratively out of UQ’s world-class laboratories and animal facilities, researchers conduct basic, applied and translational studies into livestock, equine and wildlife reproduction.

With a focus on tropical beef and dairy cattle production, Professors Michael McGowan and Michael Holland, and Dr Gry Boe-Hansen investigate ways to improve the outcome of fixed-time AI, identify and control the major factors affecting reproductive performance of beef and dairy herds, develop non-surgical alternatives to prevent conception in cattle, improve selection of high fertility bulls, and improve the fertilising capacity of stored sperm.
