Dr Carolyn de Koning
Carolyn de Koning’s original research discipline was pasture variety development, ecology and agronomy. However, in the last four years Carolyn has redirected her skills and experience into free range poultry research with a particular emphasis on the outdoor range environment. Carolyn has overseen and successfully completed projects funded by the Poultry CRC on the topics of “saltbush on free range farms” and “Determination of range enrichment on commercial layer farms”. Currently, Carolyn has projects looking into resilient plants for free range chicken meat farms (funded by AgriFutures Chicken Meat program) and layers (funded by Australian Eggs).
