Biography: Tony retired last year from the Queensland Department of Agriculture, Fisheries and Forestry after working with the department as a biometrician for over 45 years. He has been a Principal Biometrician since 1991, and for the last 10 years has worked particularly with other research scientists on beef industry projects. He has been an active member of the Queensland Branch of SSAI, being its inaugural treasurer (1981-86), twice president (1991-92 and 2001-02) and an initial member of the SSAI Accreditation Committee (1998-2000). His contributions were acknowledged by an SSAI Service Award in 2003. In his talk Tony will look at the history of biometrical consulting by his work group and the history of the SSAI Queensland Branch, emphasising aspects which have changed dramatically and those which have remained much the same.
