Transcript of The Archibull Prize

What is it? BEEF DAIRY COTTON WOOL The Archibull Prize is an integrated program which will engage secondary and primary school students in agricultural and environmental awareness through art, design, creativity and teamwork The Archibull Prize is an Art4Agriculture initiative delivered with the support of our funding partners. The program has been running successfully in NSW for the past two years and 2013-14 will see the Archibull Prize expand to other Australian states.

The program's multilayered activities use art and multimedia to engage students in secondary schools to learn through hands on experience about the challenges of feeding, clothing and housing the world with a declining natural resource base ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? How Does the Project Work? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? Each school is given their own primary (food or fibre) industry to explore and showcase.
In 2013 this will be Beef or Dairy or Wool or Cotton. Let's explore these industries further Art4Agriculture
aims to educate our next generation about sustainable farming and engage them in genuine farm experiences In Northern Australia, beef cattle are raised on large properties called stations, some of which are more than one million hectares (bigger than Jamaica ) in size. Not surprisingly, the cattle are often mustered using helicopters or light aircraft. Amazingly, for every litre of milk a cow makes, more than 400 litres of blood must travel around her udder to deliver the nutrients and water for making milk. In a normal year, Australia’s cotton growers produce enough cotton to clothe 500 million people. Over the last 10 years, the Australian cotton industry has reduced pesticide use by over 90 percent, through a combination of biotechnology and Integrated Pest Management practices. Australia has enough sheep to go nose to tail around the equator twice Australia is the world’s largest producer of wool What are the requirements?

Archibull Prize
$1000 ? ? ? It is widely recognised we grow the best cotton in the world. Australia has an enviable reputation on the world market as a reliable supplier of very high quality cotton, and can command a premium price for this reason. A professional shearer can remove the entire fleece from the sheep in under 5 minutes It takes 50 to 70 hours for a cow to turn grass into milk In 2013 Australian dairy farmers produce 60% more milk from 50% fewer cows than they milked in 1950 Australian red meat is exported to more than 100 countries and contributes high-quality protein to approximately six billion meals each year!
