Blue Chip Genetics

Bluechip Genetics is a vital spoke in a seamless Australasian marketing wheel that revolves around Dean and Dianna Malcolm – the owner/operators of Australias all breeds website and magazine.

Bluechip was the home of the 2006 International Dairy Week (IDW) grand champion Holstein and remains the home of the 2008 IDW grand champion Illawarra; the 2008 IDW reserve champion Ayrshire; the 2008 IDW reserve junior Holstein champion; the 2008 IDW honourable mention senior champion Jersey and Holstein. Dean was also one of the co-breeders of the 2005 and 2007 IDW grand champion Holstein, Fairvale Jed Bonnie 94 (who is now owned by Leslie Farms). It means Dean had some sort of tie to the grand champion Holstein at IDW for three successive years between 2005 and 2007.

Temple Grandin Ph.D – Animal Welfare

Dr. Temple Grandin is a designer of livestock handling facilities and a Professor of Animal Science at Colorado State University. Facilities she has designed are located in the United States, Canada, Europe, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, and other countries. In North America, almost half of the cattle are handled in a center track restrainer system that she designed for meat plants. Curved chute and race systems she has designed for cattle are used worldwide and her writings on the flight zone and other principles of grazing animal behavior have helped many people to reduce stress on their animals during handling.

She has also developed an objective scoring system for assessing handling of cattle and pigs at meat plants. This scoring system is being used by many large corporations to improve animal welfare. Other areas of research are: cattle temperament, environmental enrichment for pigs, reducing dark cutters and bruises, bull fertility, training procedures, and effective stunning methods for cattle and pigs at meat plants.
