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

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.
