Having spent the last week visiting schools in Sydney with Young Farming Champions (YFC) Jo Newton (dairy) Peta Bradley ( Wool) and Laura Phelps (Pork) it never ceases to amaze me how much I learn about agriculture and the way the students soak up everything the YFC share with them.
From the depth of the questions the students asked it was clear a great deal of investigation of their allocated agriculture industry has happened over the last 6 months.
its also very rewarding to travel around with the YFC and listen to what motivates them and their plans for the future.
I am constantly dumfounded at the depth of their talent.
An outstanding example of this is Cotton Young Farming Champion Sharna Holman who has become a mega media star this year. Sharna has been featured ( along with YFC Hannah Barber and Stephanie Fowler) in OUTBACK Magazine, and the RAS Times ( along with YFC Emma Longworth) and co-stars in this very clever series of Lone Stranger Adventure videos promoting best practice biosecurity outcomes
Go Sharna – cant wait to see where you pop up next
