Narrogin producer and sheep meat processor, Peter Trefort, has joined the Sheep CRC board of directors.
Working towards a goal of ‘transforming wool, meat and the sheep that produce them’, the Sheep CRC's chief executive, Professor James Rowe, says Mr Trefort brings a range of invaluable experiences and insights.
"Peter is a very strong advocate for the sheep industry and has a large ongoing commitment to this industry – he has more than 40 years’ experience in sheep and cattle production and management across the supply chain," Prof. Rowe said.
Mr Trefort is a director of Hillside Meats which has been successful in developing and commercialising a new range of lamb cuts to extend markets.
He is also a director of WA Q-Lamb supply chain which is known for its quality control and consistency of supply.
"Also significantly, Peter is a MLA board director, and as such, has an excellent understanding of industry issues and the role of R & D in resolving key issues with practical solutions," Prof. Rowe said.
