ABOUT THE PRESENTERS
Russ grew up on a farm and feedlot operation, so after a career in the Armed Forces, livestock and the agriculture sector was a natural fit. Russ has held a variety of leadership roles in sales and market development with ProBeef, Ridley and Elders. From 2010 he spearheaded the introduction of Regulin® for Ceva Animal Health and continues to work with research partners in Australia and overseas better to understand how melatonin can benefit Australian producers.
Chloe is the MERINOSELECT Development Officer of Sheep Genetics with Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA). She grew up on a property near Gilgandra in Central West New South Wales where her family run a commercial mixed farming enterprise, so farming is in her genes. She joined the MLA team after completing her Bachelor of Rural Science at UNE in 2021 and is responsible for client interactions, service delivery and extension activities that increase the adoption and awareness of Sheep Genetics.
Andrew and Jodie commenced managing Aloeburn and became the stud principals in 2012. They immediately adopted the use of ASBVs and were awarded a 5-STAR rating from Sheep Genetics in 2023 for the accuracy and completeness of the data they collect and record for all their stud-born animals.
The Aloeburn flock is mostly commercial, comprising 7,500 breeding ewes with a stud nucleus of 800 ewes. Andrew’s wealth of experience managing mixed farming operations across NSW means he understands the need for sheep to adapt to - and thrive - in different environments. Andrew's experience combined with the data Jodie meticulously collects on all stud-born animals, allows Aloeburn to appreciate, identify and breed sheep with traits suited to commercial producers across a wide range of conditions and country.
