What is it?
Primary Industries Technical Officer
What will I do?
I manage research trials on a government research station. A typical day involves feeding the cattle in the feedlot and then checking for newborn calves in the paddocks. We collect birthweight and DNA data for new calves, give them an ID tag and then process this data in the lab. My role isn't just about chasing cows and fixing fences. I work alongside scientists, producers and other industry professionals.
