About Me

Dr Jaime Manning is a lecturer in Agriculture within the School of Health, Medical and Applied Sciences at CQUniversity Australia and an Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellow. She has a Bachelor of Animal and Veterinary Bioscience (First Class Honours) after completing an honours project researching the use of GPS technology to detect the predation of sheep. Her PhD was obtained from the Sydney Institute of Agriculture at The University of Sydney in 2018, and investigated heterogeneity in pasture systems, and how it affects cattle production, paddock utilisation and behaviour using livestock tracking and pasture sensor technologies. Jaime's main research interests are using and incorporating technology on farm to improve the level of monitoring and welfare of livestock (cattle and sheep), whilst providing invaluable information into how we manage livestock and detect issues as they arise in extensive production systems. She is also involved in agri-tech school programs including GPScows. Currently, she teaches animal production, behaviour, welfare and new and emerging technologies into the CQUni agriculture degree program. Jaime is also working with the Australia Wool Innovation (AWI) on an Advance Queensland Industry Research Fellowship, testing AWI's smart sensor ear tag for predation and disease detection in sheep.

Jaime’s expertise and research interests include:

Precision Livestock Management

Livestock tracking technologies

Animal behaviour and welfare

Pasture sensor technologies

Spatial analysis, paddock utilisation and on-farm management
