2021 Scholarship winner
Camille Camp from Derby, Western Australia, receives a Nuffield Scholarship supported by The Yulgilbar Foundation. Through her research, Camille will investigate the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic and consumer expectations on the future of the northern Australia live export trade.
Camille is head stockwoman at family owned and operated cattle enterprise, Kalyeeda Station, which runs a herd of 10,000 Droughtmaster and Brahman cattle across 122,000 hectares.
Camille is particularly focused on management strategies that can be implemented across the beef production supply chain to maintain market demand and access amidst challenging conditions.
“As the northern Australia beef industry is almost entirely dependent on the live export trade and the overseas markets it supplies, research into the future stability of the industry and corresponding management strategies is critical,” Camille said.
“In addition to the COVID-19 pandemic placing pressure on the future viability of trade to key live export markets, there is an ever-increasing demand from consumers that the beef industry demonstrates environmental sustainability and improved animal welfare standards.”
Camille will also investigate the potential impact of COVID-19 on animal welfare due to reduced monitoring, and the implications on social licence.
“Through my Nuffield Scholarship, I hope to link to Meat & Livestock Australia’s Strategic Plan and focus on key priority areas such as growing and diversifying markets, consumer and community support and supply chain efficiency and integrity,” Camille said.
Camille will study global imported livestock markets across Southeast Asian countries, and also live export dependent regions in northern Australia during her Nuffield Scholarship.
