Data capture and feedback The Almtech Project

Sarita first developed an interest in agriculture after a farm stay on a merino stud in Parkes. Being dragged behind a quad bike on an overturned car bonnet and the smell of sheep hooked her to the country lifestyle. Sarita went on to complete a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience then a PhD in quantitative genetics at the University of Sydney. 
Leading the tech revolution of the meat industry

DEXA, or dual x-ray absorptiometer technology, is a carcass measurement system which can accurately differentiate meat from fat and bone, offering considerable efficiency savings to Australia’s meat industry. The technology will not only bring greater accuracy in terms of meat yield and improved profit margins, it will also provide vital data which will help raise meat quality and consistency across the industry. It’s one of a series of technologies from Murdoch’s Advanced Livestock Measurement Technologies project, led by Professor Graham Gardner.
