ADHIS names new chairman

By Country News on December 09, 2015

Victorian dairy farmer John Harlock has been appointed chairman of the Australian Dairy Herd Improvement Scheme, the organisation that provides Australian Breeding Values and other objective information about the genetic merit of dairy cattle.

Mr Harlock operates a 350-cow dairy farm near Warrnambool, with his wife Shirley.

He has served on the ADHIS Board for eight years after holding positions on a number of dairy industry boards including Warrnambool Cheese & Butter Company, Genetics Australia, Western Herd Improvement and Warrnambool Co-operative Society.

Mr Harlock thanked out-going chair Adrian Drury, who stepped down to focus on the adoption of new technology in his dairy business on the NSW mid-north coast.
