Jonathan England is a recognised leader in Australian sheep production systems. Over a nine-year period in the Department of Agriculture WA, he led a range of regional, national and international projects, and played a major role in the development of Lifetime Ewe Management. Jonathan also led the research and adoption of grazing crops in WA and was involved in the establishment of sheep meat value chains into international markets.
Today Jonathan farms with wife Danielle and daughter Georgina at Keilira (via Kingston SE), as well as providing on-farm consulting services to clients across Australia. He is an ‘early-adopter’ of on-farm technology and enjoys the fact it allows farmers to access information more easily. He manages AgInnovate’s on-farm livestock and farm data technology implementation program (eIDs and online mapping tools) and has good contacts with most of the technology suppliers, making technology adoption easy and hassle-free.
Jonathan has a degree in Agricultural Science from Waite Campus, University of Adelaide, an extensive knowledge of the sheep industry, and the capability to deliver sheep information to groups and individuals alike.
