Associate Professor Mark Trotter

Mark Trotter is an Associate Professor in Precision Livestock within the School of Medical and Applied Sciences at Central Queensland University (CQU). Mark is a member of the Future Farming Institute and Precision Livestock Research Group at CQU.

His research interests focus on spatio-temporal variability in agricultural systems and the development of sensors and management techniques that enable producers to increase production and efficiency in the face of variation found in soils, plants and animals.

Within the area of animal management Mark has focussed on the development of sensor systems which can monitor the varying components of animal wellbeing from both a production and social license perspective.

Professor Trotter will be talking to us about on-animal sensor development and their application in welfare assessment – view Abstract
