Cam has worked in pasture agronomy and soils for 35 years and has been involved in many farmer programs for the GRDC, MLA, Landcare and the current Future Drought Fund.  He provides consultancy advice to farmers and lectures on animal and pasture systems at Marcus Oldham College. His most recent work has focussed on understanding and discussing risk in farming businesses, carbon accounting and decision making.

  • Understanding carbon within agriculture and grazing businesses
  • The carbon space is rapidly evolving, how should this be approached into the future? 
  • The importance of focussing on improving emissions intensity within the short term
