Meet winmeatlee see the story of australian beef

  1. 1. Winmeatlee Winmalee High School 2013
  2. 2. Winmeatlee meeting the students.
  3. 3. Winmeatlee decided to have a game of soccer with students and meet Winmalee's Deputy Principal Mrs Facas
  4. 4. Winmeatlee finds a home in Art room 4
  5. 5. Time to find out the facts As custodians of nearly 50% of Australia's land mass, the Australian red meat and livestock industry recognises its responsibility to sustainably manage the environment for all Australians while providing a nutritious, quality food product.
  6. 6. Students researching Sustainable farming in the Beef Industry Greenhouse gas emissions from beef production have reduced by 6.5% per kilogram of meat produced sine the Kyoto baseline year of 1990
  7. 7. Over 13 million dollars are invested annually in research and development to better understand the environmental impact and to further improve the environmental performance of the industry that is red meat.
  8. 8. Most farmers strive to protect, manage and enhance biodiversity on grazing farms. In the past, mandated land clearing reduced the amount of natural vegetation which , coupled with some traditional land management practices, resulted in a decline in biodiversity.
  9. 9. Young Farmer Kylie Schuller visits Winmalee With Kylie we found out some interesting information.
  10. 10. With Kylie Schuller we found out: All parts of the cow are used and appear in products you would not even associate with an animal such as: • • • • • Car Tyres Dry wall Paint Sugar Asphalt
  11. 11. With Kylie Schuller we found out: • Cows enter feed lots and are feed a variety of food. This can include by-products, silage, grain and hay. • Trained stock people check cattle in the yards every day to make sure they are healthy. • Each yard can be up to 3000 square metres in size.
  12. 12. After Kylie Schullers visit we now had an idea.
  13. 13. Our concept for Winmeatlee was to represent the journey of meat ‘from the farm to the plate’. We started by looking at Roy Lichtenstein ‘Meat’. We liked the concept of Pop Art and the celebration of mass production.
  14. 14. We drew inspiration from Howard Arkley and his airbrushed paintings of houses and architecture. We wanted to represent how meat is a part of everyday life and the variety it offers.
  15. 15. We turned to our research on how the beef industry provides jobs to Australia as well as feeding a nation. Our focus was on how meat plays a role in our everyday lives and this is shown by the ‘Journey from the farm to the plate’ as well as on our plinth we have demonstrated how the Beef industry provides jobs, a source of food that is beneficial, and how we impact not only on Australia but the world through export. We also wanted to focus on the community of Winmalee and how we love to eat beef and the variety it provides as well as the health benefits. This is shown in the feed tray through plates with some of our yummiest favourite meals made out of beef.
  16. 16. We painted the cow and along the way found out some fun facts. Did you know the average Australian eats about 19.3kg beef per year?
  17. 17. On Winmeatlee we have filled her feed tray with some of the different types of meals Winmalee students like to eat. This not only demonstrates our favourite meals but also the variety that red meat offers.
  18. 18. More painting
  19. 19. A poddy (orphan) calf can drink up to two litres of milk, twice a day
  20. 20. In 2009, cattle became the first livestock to have is genome mapped
  21. 21. Painting the base.
  22. 22. Did you know? • A cow can climb up the stairs, but cannot climb down. This is because their knees cannot bend properly. • A cow usually spends 6-7 hours in the day eating and around 8 hours on chewing it. • Cows have an acute sense of smell and can smell something up to 6 miles away. • A cow will only produce milk for the first time, after she gives birth to a calf.
  23. 23. Year 7 made posters prompting the benefits of eating red meat. Year 10 students spent time on educating the students with the information they had learnt.
  24. 24. Australian red meat has a longstanding reputation for quality and consistency. Meat and meat products from Australia enjoy world-wide demand due to this established reputation and our single minded focus on quality. Abundant pastoral land, a clean environment and cutting edge animal rearing practices ensure well fed and healthy animals, thus enabling Australian growers to rear some of the best quality animals available anywhere in the world.
  25. 25. We have spent a long time finding out about the community and passing on the information we have learnt. We have included a video that demonstrates this.
  26. 26. Reflection Time Over the process of knowing, naming and giving life to Winmeatlee, the team have learnt about the different cuts of meat and how universal beef is. We have gained knowledge about the health benefits that come with red meat, the sustainability that farmers are working towards and are already achieving. This opportunity has given us the chance to become educated in one of Australia's biggest industry's. We now have the knowledge and power to educated our fellow peers and community.
