Dr Lydia Turner is a research fellow in the Dairy Centre of the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture. Lydia's current research focus is rural sociology, and she also has experience in dairy pasture research. She is currently exploring the social processes of change and adoption in farming systems, in Australian and developing world contexts.

Biography

Lydia has conducted research for the Dairy Centre of the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture on a part time basis since graduating from her PhD in 2006. Her PhD studies at the University of Tasmania focused on the physiology and management of alternative perennial pasture species for temperate dairy pasture systems and she published seven journal papers from this work within a year of graduating. She has since worked part-time while raising children; maintaining a sound publication record, presenting at international and national conferences, and acting as an ambassador for agricultural science and UTAS in the community. Lydia continues to publish agronomy-based research but has been building capacity in social research. Her current research focuses on the processes of farmer decision making, change and adoption, particularly in relation to engagement with RD&E activities.

Research Themes

Lydia's social research aligns with the University's research themes of Environment, Resources and Sustainability; and Data, Knowledge and Decisions. Her research interests include understanding how farmers make decisions around change and gain/share knowledge. Lydia's research into the adoption process has led to the development of a new insights, called 'Boundaries to Change'. Adoption of new farming practices is a complex process, yet RD&E providers often approach farmers with the expectation that a common extension program will persuade all farmers to adopt their best practice recommendations. The concept of 'Boundaries to Change' offers a deeper understanding of farmer adoption and non-adoption and Lydia's current work aims to extend and further develop this framework. Lydia is also evaluating whether/how innovative participatory RD&E methods can engage farmers, and accelerate on-farm change. Her social research is currently based within the Tasmanian dairy industry, and extends to smallholder farming communities in south-central Vietnam. Other related research interests have included exploring the pathways of young people into agricultural careers, the decision making of farmers expanding their business operations, and farmer learning processes.

Lydia's dairy pasture research aligned with the University's research theme of Environment, Resources and Sustainability. Her research has focused on understanding the physiology of temperate pasture species in order to maximise feed quality, production and persistence through appropriate management.

Current projects

  • Dairy on PAR (funded by Dairy Australia) - Lydia is currently leading the social research component of the TIA Dairy Centre's major Feedbase Project; investigating the process of change (including why some farmers resist change), adoption of technology and the innovative use of participatory methods by RD&E providers to achieve on-farm change.
  • 'Developing productive and profitable smallholder beef enterprises in Central Vietnam' (funded by ACIAR) - Lydia has contributed to the social research components of an ACIAR-funded research project in Vietnam; developing research methods around knowledge transfer and adoption in the smallholder farming systems.
  • 'Delivery of real-time information solutions for intensively managed pasture based industries' (funded by Sense-T) – Lydia recently led the social research and M&E components of the Dairy Sense-T project; exploring the potential uptake of the new technology by dairy farmers and monitoring project engagement with industry.

Fields of Research

  • Rural sociology (441003)
  • Crop and pasture production (300499)
  • Farm management, rural management and agribusiness (300208)

Research Objectives

  • Pasture, browse and fodder crops (100599)
  • Other education and training (169999)
  • Other animal production and animal primary products (109999)

Publications

Lydia’s current publication focus is to share recent farmer adoption and learning findings with Scientific and agricultural industry audiences through conferences and journals. Publishing social research papers commenced in 2014, and prior to this Lydia’s primary focus was pasture science. Lydia's PhD studies investigated the physiology and management of alternative perennial pasture species for temperate dairy pasture systems and she published seven journal papers from this work within a year of graduating in 2006.

NEXUS project: exploring profitable, sustainable livestock businesses in an increasingly variable climate (2020 - 2023)$1,310,728
Description
This is a collaborative project that will investigate future integrated grazing system designs using a collaboration from three new partners to the LPP. It also offers the opportunity for collaboration and linkage with existing LPP partners. The outcomes will form the basis for future R&D priorities in grazing systems along the entire east coast of Australia for LPP, MLA, SAMRC and NABRC. The project will directly contribute to the planning and implementation of the MLA and industry driven CN30 initiative and the RMAC Sustainability Framework. The project will identify a range of options for future grazing systems that:-will identify ways to deliver up to 3% ROA for a range of grazing systems in Tasmania, Gippsland, NWQld and the Northern Territory with methodology linkages to the MLA funded project investigating farming system options in NVic, NNSW and Central Qld and work being conducted by the NSW DPI Climate Group.-will be conducted in the context of significant known and predicted changes to climate parameters including temperature, rainfall and frost (including emerging new patterns and the incidence of extreme events)-examine the opportunity to diversify income from carbon mitigation projects under the Emissions Reduction Fund using new grasses or legumes, new supplements, and the integration of grazing management within carbon projects-examine the opportunity to diversify income and integrate into grazing or carbon management the emerging market for eco credits -will be developed using reference groups from the relevant SAMRC and NABRC regional committees and regional consultants to advise on system options-are assessed for their effectiveness as adaptation options using a number of metrics, including farm scale production, profitability, economic risk, farm-scale greenhouse gas emissions and the ease of implementation.The work in Tasmania will first calibrate systems models using existing management of representative sheep and beef farms in Tasmania. The number and location of case study farms will be conducted in consultation with SAMRC committee members. Model files calibrated based on grower/industry feedback will then be used to explore adaptations for each farm. Adaptations (hereafter, development options) will be selected in consultation with the SAMRC committee and may include changes to pasture base, animal genotype and/or management (hereafter termed development options). Development options in each region will be defined by a panel of producers to ensure they are regionally relevant. Examples of development options to be investigated could include: pasture (e.g. property scale integration of forage options, both existing and currently being investigated in feedbase research), animal (e.g. increased heat tolerance), management (e.g. integration of trees, increased livestock/live-weight throughput, optimising lifetime feed-use efficiency and selling strategies) and technology (e.g. virtual fencing). Following the approach conducted by the Uni Melb CC project, each development option will be evaluated in terms of profit targets, economic risk and farm-level greenhouse gas (GHG) emission intensity. The case study farm and development options will be analysed in historical and future climate scenarios based on projections for 2030.

Pastures and Livestock Productivity Project - Phase Two (2019)$61,500
Description
TIA has been contracted by DPIPWE to conduct Phase 2 of The Pasture and Livestock Productivity Project, that focuses on Development of Extension Strategy for the Tasmanian red meat industry. Phase 2 is a discrete 4-month sub-project within the wider 3-year project. The wider Pasture and Livestock Productivity Project aims to understand the knowledge and or skills that limit the ability of red meat producers to establish and maintain productive perennial pastures (Phase 1), use this understanding to develop an extension strategy that can build this capacity (Phase 2), and implement this strategy through public and private service providers (Phase 3). The knowledge, experience and networks TIA has across RD&E and the red meat industry will ensure targeted and relevant extension activities are developed.

Dairy HIGH - High Integrity Grass-fed Herds (2019 - 2021)$1,079,830
Description
This project focuses on sustainable and profitable growth in Tasmanias pasture based dairy industry. In this 16-month project proposal we will research and combine the accessible and emerging technologies and practices that are driving productivity and efficiency improvements, with the industrys desire to address consumer expectations with respect to environmental management (our environment), animal welfare (our cows) and our people.This will be achieved by focusing on 5 areas of work that relate to our environment, our cows and our people1.Nitrogen efficiency in highly productive systems (environment).2.Novel grazing practices in large grass-fed dairy systems (cows).3.Addressing and preparing for changing social values with respect to animal welfare (cows).4.Regional people and skills shortages (People).5.Building capacity in the Tasmanian dairy industry (People).The proposed integrated RD&E program is designed with 16 months of activities + a five year time horizon, at the request of the funder, Dairy Australia.

Description
Delivery of real-time information solutions for intensively managed pasture based industries. This project brings together the Tasmanian Institute of Agriculture and CSIRO to extend research conducted during Sense-T's Stage 1 Beef and Dairy project. Researchers will further enhance their pasture prediction model by using sensors and data to allow farmers to predict and prepare for different scenarios, and will further develop on-animal sensors to better monitor health, grazing and productivity in the dairy and livestock industries.

Dairy on PAR (2015 - 2019)$1,986,011
Description
: The Tasmanian Dairy on PAR project will contribute towards achieving the Dairy Moving Forward (DMF) vision of profitable, growing, sustainable, rewarding dairy farms. The project utilises the RD&E expertise of the TIA Dairy Centre in addressing the three high level objectives for improved feedbase performance in pasture based dairy systems: increasing pasture consumption by 0.05 to 0.1t DM/ha per 100mm of water received (equivalent to 0.75 to 1.5t DM/ha increase); understanding the plant/animal/feeding interface to enhance individualised feeding decisions that increases the marginal milk response of concentrate feeding by 20%; and growing industry skills, knowledge and confidence in business analysis and risk to increase operating profit (EBIT) by $0.1 kg MS. This project also recognises that a technological shift associated with milk harvesting in the form of automatic milking system (AMS) creates a new dynamic that must be considered and incorporated into any new activities
