Roseworthy Campus of the University of Adelaide is an internationally renowned centre for excellence in dryland agriculture, natural resource management and animal production.
Roseworthy is continuing its pioneering role with a strategic vision for the 21st century that focusses on combining and integrating resources with campus partners and rural industries to develop the campus as the hub of information transfer, communication, learning and new technologies for the rural community.
Campus partners include Technical and Further Education (TAFE) SA, Primary Industries and Resources South Australia (PIRSA) and the South Australian Research and Development Institute (SARDI). Roseworthy is also the location for collaborative centres such as the Pig and Poultry Production Institute (PPPI) which is part of Livestock Systems Alliance (LSA).

Roseworthy has made an invaluable contribution to the education and careers of local, state, national and international identities across a range of industries including agriculture and viticulture.
The campus is home to the State Government's Constellation in Animal Science, a major player in several Cooperative Research Centres (including Pork CRC, Poultry CRC, Beef CRC and Bio-remediation); and the JS Davies Beef Cattle Research Centre.
The Head of School - Animal and Veterinary Sciences is Professor Kym Abbott. The Deputy Head - Animal and Veterinary Sciences is Professor Phil Hynd who runs Cutaneous biology. He has also been involved in the Sheep CRC, developing improved techniques for mulesing sheep.
Australian Grain Technologies Pty Ltd (AGT) is the largest cereal breeding company in Australia and one of the largest in the world, and has made Roseworthy the centre of its national operations.
Roseworthy is once again leading the way in servicing the vitally important agricultural sector of Australia.
Roseworthy Campus has been reinvigorated with the establishment of a highly-successful Bachelor's degree in Animal Science, attracting more than 50 students per year and building on this success, an annual intake of approximately 60 students in Veterinary Science.
The Roseworthy and Waite campuses are recognised as centres of excellence in agricultural science and this reputation underpins the Bachelor of Agricultural Sciences.
