About Me

Mark Trotter is an Associate Professor in Precision Livestock within the School of Medical an 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.

Background
Mark grew up on a dairy farm on the mid-North coast of NSW where he gained experience in a range of livestock operations.
Universities Studied At
University of New England
