Young Farming Champions Muster June 2018 Week 1

This weeks top stories from Young Farming Champions across the country

In the Field 

Our Young Farming Champions like Wool producer and UNE Honours student Emma Turner are regularly invited to share their research at events like MerinoLink The Hour of Power .  You can never overestimate the value of a great head shot for your bio and we love working with Antony Hands at Chasing Summer Photography who shot Emma’s portfolio this week.  We are confident you will agree we also got the perfect shot for our In the Field segment this week.

Speaking of UNE students big shout out for your first trimester exams this week

From the Field

Young Farming Champions Tayla Field and  Emma Ayliffe will be visiting schools in Sydney and Wollongong as part The Archibull Prize 2018.

Another 1000 students will be talking  all things cotton and veggies, gaining a greater understanding of the challenges to feed and clothe them in the 21st Century and being  inspired to join the next generation of agriculturalists finding solutions to those challenges.

Lucy Collingridge is travelling to Edmonton and Argentina later in the year and has created the Facebook page 1 Agriculturalist 2 Conferences 3 Countries  to share her learnings from her trips.  Lucy is looking forward to bringing home some fresh ideas for both the Australian agricultural sector and the show movement.

The world needs creative, innovative and courageous young people who can connect, collaborate and act. We know that youth may only be 20% of the population but they are 100% of the future. The time is now to let them share their dreams and design the future they want to see.
