AWI announces new Project Manager for Blowfly Control

Jul '07
Ian Evans has been announced as the new Project Manager for Blowfly Control with Australian Wool Innovation (AWI).

This program includes important research in the area of mulesing alternatives, as AWI works to deliver viable alternatives to conventional mulesing before 2010.

AWI General Manager Wool Production, Ian Rogan, said Mr Evans has a strong history within the wool industry, working with the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries for the last 16 years.

“I'm very pleased Ian Evans is joining AWI. He has invaluable experience gained through many years as the District Livestock Officer for Sheep and Wool in the Riverina region of NSW with the Department of Primary Industries,” said Mr Rogan.

“For the last 5 years, Mr Evans has also been the NSW Sheep Ectoparasite Control Coordinator, so his knowledge of production systems is second to none. As an accredited muleser, he also has hands-on experience that makes him ideal for this position with AWI.”

Ian Evans worked with the Livestock Contractors Association to develop a training program which now sits behind the National Mulesing Assurance Program (NMAP), and is the author of the training manual for NMAP.

“I completed the accreditation program for mulesing because I wanted to know about the process involved in getting people to industry best practice standards,” said Mr Evans.

“As one of the few scientists who is also an accredited muleser, thisexperience was invaluable in writing the NMAP training manual.

“I'm committed to finding viable alternatives to mulesing. I have no illusions about how much work this will involve, but it's the equivalent of a gold medal for the industry. We will find something as effective as conventional mulesing.”

Ian Evans will be based at the AWI Falkiner Field Station, in Deniliquin, NSW.
