Dr Ross Cutler

Project Consultant

Ross is a fourth generation horticulturist and career wise wanted to work in agriculture. His professional life of 40 + years has been spent undertaking veterinary work with businesses, institutions, universities, farms and governments (including the UN) from around the world in matters mostly to do with pigs. As a consultant, Ross schedules his veterinary business to pick up work in the developing world including Laos, East Timor, Thailand, Vietnam and PNG.

How does Ross want to make a difference: “Helping people feed themselves and others is an honourable profession. The idea of assisting communities in PNG to take control of their own food security and at the same time build small inclusive businesses that empower people appeals to me. In the Hilans Pik Limited project the technology is very straightforward. Implementation, in PNG with all its complexities, is a little more difficult.”
