Although I grew up on a mixed grazing farm in southern Victoria, after my first visit to the rangelands I was hooked and all thoughts of returning “home” to Victoria vanished. I’m fascinated at how each of the components of a rangeland grazing business (natural resources, animals, finances and people) interact with each other. Over the last 20 years I have been fortunate to experience a variety of roles within grazing businesses or supporting them via community or government agencies. A career highlight has been working with the Indigenous Pastoral Program based in Alice Springs.
