UQ researcher looking at farmers views of livestock production

An honours student, Ms Camille Page at the University of Queensland, is doing an interesting research project looking into producers’ perspectives. This project will explore regenerative agriculture as a social phenomenon, and reveal the differences, if any, in values and worldviews between farmers practicing regenerative agriculture, and farmers practicing more conventional methods of agricultural production. This project is being undertaken because of the recent surge of interest in regenerative agriculture in media and even in parts of our industry.

For this research, Camille is looking for approximately 60 people to participate in a voluntary postal survey. The data generated from this survey will be used to explore the range of reactions to these issues. A small number of follow up, semi-structured interviews with participants may also be conducted, if there is time, to go into more details.

The criteria for participation are:

  • You must be over 18 years old and live in Australia
  • You are primarily a livestock producer
  • You practice either ‘conventional’ farming methods, or regenerative methods of production
