Autism and Agriculture, SunPork Farms

5 June 2017

Autism and Agriculture is an initiative of SunPork Farms and Autism CRC which aims to improve animal welfare by creating opportunities in animal care for adults on the autism spectrum. In collaboration with Pork CRC and Specialisterne Australia, eight autistic adults in South Australia and Queensland will be employed within SunPork Farms during the pilot program. Mentoring and workplace support will enable candidates to work in the agricultural industry, employing key strengths in animal care to ultimately enhance animal welfare.
