Victoria focuses on agriculture

  • Posted on Tuesday 10th, April 2018.

Young farmers across Victoria are being encouraged to help shape the future of agriculture, with expressions of interest to join the Young Farmers Advisory Council.

Minister for Agriculture, Jaala Pulford, announced today that applications are being sought from farmers and those involved in the food and fibre supply chain.

“Our next generation of farmers are our future,” said Pulford. “We want our leaders of tomorrow to get involved and tell us how we can take Victoria’s $13 billion industry to the next level.”

The Victorian Government is seeking highly motivated, skilled and dynamic young people, from all agricultural industries and regions, to join the Council.

The Council will consist of eight members with a balance of representation by gender, industry and region.

Collectively, Council members will have a broad range of skills and experience, including farm management, agribusiness, finance, education, international markets and regional development.

Council members will provide advice to government on issues and program delivery for young people working in agriculture.

Council members also act as young ambassadors to attract new entrants to the state’s vibrant agriculture sector and help to shape future support for young people on the land.

Expressions of Interest to join the Council open today and close on 11, May, 2018.
