Dr Dean Revell is an agricultural scientist with 25 years experience in research in animal nutrition, grazing systems, and livestock-landscape interactions. His background and interests are in working with producers, industry and NRM groups, and researchers to co-design practical and profitable systems for the benefit of people and landscapes.
Dean has previously worked independently (Revell Science) to provide contract services in agriculture and NRM, after a decade as a principal research scientist at CSIRO and a combined 14 years at The Rowett Research Institute, Massey University, The University of Adelaide, and The University of Western Australia (currently an Adjunct Associate Professor at UWA). Dean has published about 150 papers, including 18 reviews and six book chapters.
Dean established and co-led the Eureka Award-winning ‘Enrich’ project that explored grazing systems suited to Australia’s conditions, by using native perennial shrubs in a diverse feed base. He also co-developed Rangelands Self Herding, which is a suite of methods based on nutrition and behaviour to influence livestock grazing patterns.
Dean brings his previous experiences to his role in Select Carbon where he takes a lead role in designing and supporting systems that integrate grazing management and carbon farming for the benefit of landholders and the natural resource base of our rangelands and farm lands.
