Unfortunately, we just can’t do research and think farmers will take up what we recommend. Building on many years in Research Development & Extension (RD&E) in the Australian and South-East Asian beef industries, I have had a leading role in helping to create systems that find pathways to business practice for what spills from our test tubes. Understanding this can help scientists more appropriately position their research outcomes and support practice change.
